I've been encouraged by the recent progress in differential privacy that 
opt-out freedom respecting telemetry may be possible. I think this needs to be 
discussed and coordinated on a platform level and offered as a standard feature 
for packages on the platform, rather than something app developers have to 
implement on their own in each instance.

An easy API to discover whether you have any packages that could be upgraded 
would be very handy as well. Currently I find this information by running `guix 
time-machine --branch=master -- package -u --dry-run --no-grafts` but this is 
imperfect, takes a long time to run, and doesn't inform me whether there's 
upstream package updates that aren't packaged in Guix yet but that I could use 
with a package transform.
