You'll have to be very careful. Last time I tried, you couldn't symlink the 
store, but you can mount another file system on /gnu. The main issue is the 
database in /var/guix.

It needs to be in sync with what's in the store. If you share the store between 
the two systems, and install packages on both, the database will only know 
about some packages, so guix gc will wipe the other system.

In addition, you'll need to keep profiles in sync on both systems othewise guix 
gc will also wipe the profiles from che other system, since they are not gc 
roots on the current system.
