Yeah.  That's really a good idea.  But unfortunately my Emacs init time
isn't stable after the Emacs 28 upgrade (without native compilation).
Sometimes it is as long as 4 seconds and sometimes only a fraction of
second.  Even if I a calculate an average, that won't be reliable.  I
have no idea why this is happening now, maybe I'll try investigate it
later.  I don't have much problem with this random startup time, as I
don't restart Emacs much (as the time of writing, emacs-uptime says
"5 days, 20 hours, 56 minutes, 26 seconds").

But, why is the message is shown?  Can someone remove it?  It would
probably be better that I myself clone the repo, fix it and send the
patch, but my hard disk space isn't allowing me to do that.  Is it
possible disable that message by modifing any Guix configuration file?
