Well, it's in master now (as of a few minutes ago), so I'd suggest
giving it a go.

The Guix service is just a thin wrapper around Gitolite to get it going,
so hopefully not much can go wrong. I'm not sure if necessarily all the
features of Gitolite work in the package (as the service runs in a more
minimal environment that a normal user may have). But, hopefully it will
just work fine :)
