I can talk more about rust if anyone wants. My wife still chides me for
"going into the Rust Room at FOSDEM and telling them they're doing it
wrong." I can even tie it in with the go-build-system and what the
Debian folks talked about during their BoFs on Rust/Go during Debconf.

I can also talk about user services or something about using Guix
environments/system-containers for deploying software on foreign

I'm sure there's also something there about guix-past and reproducible
