Dual booting allowed me to switch to GuixSD a lot more feasibly than I
could have otherwise.  I installed it on this laptop right before a 3
month trip.  Dual booting meant that when something wasn't in GuixSD
yet, no problem, I could switch to Debian for a bit.  Then I could work
on packages at my leisure to switch over.

The trick was realizing that the grub that Guix generates wasn't the one
I should boot into... I needed to have Guix and Debian generate their
own grub files on their own partitions, and then have a /boot/ grub
which was reeeeaally small and simply had menu options to import those
other grub files.
