Make sens for the main CI used by Guix or for an organization.

With guile-dbi, the maintenance is trivial.

This is what I did.  I have a local CI as a service that build my
projects at every new commits on a specific branch.  It works, but I
feel thing would have been easier to setup with SQLite.  It could had
been a guix-home service for example instead of a system service and
testing the configuration is much easier with a scratch DB.
