This is only for Guix System and not on foreign distro, no?

Depending on the network, the first “guix pull” is often considered as
slow [1]; especially running the command for each new user: each time,
it is a full Git clone in ~/.cache/guix/checkouts of ~400MB, if I read

Instead of cloning each time from Savannah, maybe the clone could happen
from the cache of ’root’ and only fetch from Savannah for populate by
recent commit the cache of the regular user.  It would save some network
