I agree that it isn't the purest solution, but my thinking is that
'remote-eval' is meant to be effectful anyway. As for the situation
where we build derivations for a machine that isn't running yet: I think
we can cross that bridge when we get to it -- 'guix deploy' doesn't have
the feature at the moment.
