Hi,

Of course, I agree with everything that's said here.  That's exactly why I am 
excited about Guix!   

I think it has a sound mechanism to fine-tune the degree of impurity one wishes 
to accept.

What I was thinking was maybe more organizational - is someone coming up to 
form a group or something 😄 that provides for a compromised (in-terms of 
accountability and license) yet convenient environment, akin to Ubuntu, using 
the fine mechanisms mentioned here?

It looks like Guix is creating a ripe environment for a service provider to do 
these things 😄

Cheers,
Yasu
