I'm not sure the above is accurate because near the end of deploy it
only transferred a handful of megabytes.  I suspect it needed something
to compute the derivations locally, perhaps grafts?  For example, I have
openjdk installed on the remote machine, and it was downloaded locally
(more than 100 MiB download IIRC), but it was never transferred, if I
followed correctly.

Sorry to write confusing things; I'm a bit confused myself :-).
