Does it just take long, or does it simply not terminate?

I get:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ time NIX_REMOTE=daemon nix-instantiate -A guile /data/src/nixpkgs --strict 
--eval --xml | wc -c
trace: is deprecated, use lib.zipAttrsWith instead
trace: `mkStrict' is obsolete; use `mkOverride 0' instead.
trace: `types.list' is deprecated; use `types.listOf' instead

real    0m0.668s
user    0m0.348s
sys     0m0.160s
$ (cd /data/src/nixpkgs/; git describe)
$ nix-instantiate --version
nix-instantiate (Nix) 1.11.2
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

As you can see it produces 7 MiB of XML data, but that’s pretty fast.
