We should at least be able to re-add the source code to Hydra, and
hopefully the binaries. Since the source code is content-addressed, it
can be fetched from many places, such as the local /gnu/store, an URL,
the substitutes server, and also content-addressed mirrors [0] (but not
in 0.10.0).

In the worst case, users can find new source URLs and use `guix
download` to add the source code of missing binaries whose source URLs
have changed to the store.

We should think about how to make the release tags more resilient.

Yes, please report anything that's missing.
