Also, I did not explicitly mention it, but I think this unprivileged
user namespace thing should just be one part of the strategy.

In parallel, it’s worth discussing with cluster sysadmins and see if
they can have guix-daemon running on the cluster.  There are good
reasons for them to do that compared to letting each user do their own
thing, and one of them is improved resource usage.

Ricardo outlined the setup he came up with on a cluster here:

and we have a bunch of arguments in store ;-):

In the end, for a sysadmin, it’s a cost/benefit tradeoff.  In some
situations, providing Guix may mean much less work for cluster admins.
