It isn't just guix.  There are a lot of the various projects that are
using that feature.  I just picked one and noted it in passing while
looking at the other things.  Sorry.  I didn't mean to make it feel
like I was picking on guix.  I should have picked at least three for
the example so it didn't feel like I was poking at guix specifically.
Sorry.  My bad.
