This makes me wonder how useful it is in the present state.  Are
people really needing the entire state of the entire system all in one

A suggestion:

If this a file that is commonly updated (perhaps 
such as a list of available packages, perhaps consider putting it on the 
downloads server ?

Files can be uploaded with rsync/scp,
there's no versioning, and files will also be mirrored (usually within 24 

Example (a dummy file I just created):

   $ rsync rsync://
   drwxrwsr-x          4,096 2016/04/21 14:57:21 .
   -rw-rw-r--             57 2016/04/21 14:55:01 packages.html

Access permissions to this directory are the same as commit-access to the guix 
repository, e.g.

   rsync -avhP LOCALFILE address@hidden:/srv/download/guix/

When visiting
you'll be redirected to one of the mirrors - which might not yet have the most 
up-to-date file.
to skip the redirection (not recommended), use .
