I went ahead and pushed these at commit

I asked for feedback on #swh-devel and olasd (Nicolas Dandrimont), one
of the SWH developers, replied:

<olasd> civodul: this seems like a sensible design to me; Does `guix lint`
        automatically call other network services? maybe the save request
        should be an optional flag  [13:55]
<olasd> (automatically _checking_ is fine; automatically _saving_, I don't
<civodul> olasd: there's a 'refresh' checker that calls out to services to
          determine whether a newer version of the package is available, for
          instance  [14:01]
<civodul> initially i thought about not saving at all, and just writing "you
          should save this"
<civodul> but then i thought it's more convenient to just do it right away
<civodul> it's unlikely to send garbage anyway, and it'll necessarily send
          only public code, and very likely only free code  [14:02]
<civodul> or did you have other concerns?
<olasd> I don't think it's going to be an issue for us  [14:08]
<olasd> I would just (personally) be surprised if a lint tool I'm using
        started to have side effects on somewhat unrelated systems :)

<civodul> olasd: ah true, though i guess we just got used to that ;-)  [14:12]
<civodul> anyway, thanks for your feedback!
<olasd> civodul: feel free to quote me by mail if you want to keep it archived
