This reminds me of an idea I've had for some time. It would be nice to
have a separate deploy command to be able to remotely deploy only a home
config. So instead of running `guix deploy system.scm` you could do
`guix deploy-home home.scm`.

Nice to see a fellow StumpWM user! I have some questions regarding how
to manage loading of asdf dependencies from a read-only filesystem, but I
might start a new thread for this.
