I was actually thinking of trying to write a general Scheme module for a quick, 
minimal setup of email on Guix, but right now my system configuration is an 
ugly monolith.

My roadmap looks like this:
1. Abstract email away from the system.
2. Build a personal PGP infrastructure.
3. Use the above to serve Git repositories.
4. Use the above to modularize my Guix configurations; prepare to use Linux 
From Scratch books to build my personal distribution of Guix
5. Learn how to use Emacs tools to automate  publishing of web content <= This 
is where I could try writing some text about serving email from Guix.

Would you like a copy of my current system configuration for reference?

I started writing a refusing answer, but did one more search for virtual_users 
and found that Dovecot docs do include a “Simple Virtual User Installation.” I 
will try following that. It is not as self-containing solution as I hoped, but 
I need to get things done before optimizing them.
