Hi ng0, that's neat! Is there a stem-specific guix page to link to?
The general package page is large enough it hosed my browser for quite
a while, and its link is for a multi-thousand line file...


Not the end of the world if not but most platforms provide a nice
package-specific page. For instance Debian's is...


Looks like guix is still in beta (v0.11.0) but when it has a stable
release I'd be happy to add it.

Cheers! -Damian
