Oh good news!  It's nice to hear of success stories like this.

Speaking of, the other "guix system image" thing on my queue was to work
on getting Guix running (if not usable as a phone) on my pinephone.

I tried:

  guix system image --image-type=pine64-raw pine64-barebones.scm

and flashing the output to an SD card, but that didn't boot (or if it
did, it didn't display anything on the screen).  So I assume some extra
work is necessary.
