I should point out that this uses a cached Git checkout under
~/.cache/guix/pull, thanks to the (guix git) module that Mathieu
Othacehe wrote.

So the first time you run ‘guix pull’, it clones the whole repo, and
after that it simply does the equivalent of ‘git pull’.  Better than
downloading the whole snapshot every time.  :-)
