Yes, there are good arguments for having it in mumi.  One of them is
that we can make the server and client-side work hand-in-hand.

An argument in favor of having such a tool in Guix is that we could have
Guix-specific tooling layered on top, such as listing the set of
new/upgraded packages, automatically building them, things like that.

But look: we could have a generic ‘mumi review’ that a hypothetical
‘guix review’ could use as a library and extend.

At any rate, anything will be better than the status quo, so I’m all for
starting with a simple ‘mumi review’!

Perhaps we should organize a hacking session or something eventually?
