Right.  This is something that's also bothering me.  I wonder how hard
it would be to select the database used by cuirass at runtime.

I did found the manual to be lacking.  I'm using it just to re-compile
my local package though so it's enough.

Tell me, does Laminar check for channels update like cuirass?  The main
feature I like about cuirass is that if any dependencies of a package is
updated, it will rebuild my package.  If it does support that, I will
seriously consider switching to guix-forge for my project.
