It did. I ended up with ...

 (kernel-arguments '("console=tty0 console=ttyS1,115200"))

... which leaves the local console active _and_ ships a copy over SOL.

This captures the boot messages when something awful happens and they
don't end up in /var/log. And if/when Guix punts into the REPL, I can
interact with it remotely. YEAH!

Many Thanks! - George
