I wouldn't know about the Guix part, but supporting streaming reading
responses in Guile(-Fibers) sounds useful outside Guix as well. IIRC,
at some point in the past, I tried doing some streaming of reading
responses (or was it writing responses?) and it didn't work out ...
I'm not sure what ‘this’ refers to here: supporting fixed-output
derivations in general, or improving the implementation? I don't know
the answer on the latter (except for a generic less memory/latency =
good answer), but I'd like to say that ci.guix.gnu.org's support for
fixed-output derivation makes it effectively acts like a mirror for all
source code used in Guix, so I'd like to keep that behaviour (*).
(There's always SWH, but avoiding a single points of failure would be
(*) I don't know if a lack of support for fixed-output derivations in
nar-herder would affect this ...
