Indeed, I am not bold enough to run two guix daemons at the same time !

For now, sharing /gnu and /var/guix, things seem to be working. I can use
`guix shell` for custom environments and can do `guix home reconfigure` to
manage a home profile and things seems to work.

Some guix packages behave differently between Guix system and Debian, I will
investigate those on occasion. For instance, the bower mail reader from Guix
has some issues with Unicode when run in Debian and I don't understand why
