Sure.  Where?  In the "Commentary" comment?  Good idea.

The naming "git-repo" is not great.  To be fair to upstream, their tool is
called "repo", not "git-repo".  Not sure if that's better though.

Also, I thought about naming our downloader (guix repo-download) instead of
(guix git-repo-download), but I thought that wouldn't improve things either.
Would it?
