You're welcome.  Thinking about this, it only makes sense for essential
core/bootstrap packages, especcialy GNU packages such as SED to check
them on Guix before a release.  This was kind of a coincidence and
personal interest; I am wondering if it would make sense to do this
more structurally, and add make, awk, coreutils, ... for example.

I could have helped by writing it for you when making the request.  Oh
well.  I don't see it in git yet, is that right?
