I feel the same as Chris. I started doing some packaging this year, and really 
felt downhearted when I found there was no support for package definitions with 
SSH authenticated git repositories (for private use, of course). 

In my case, I need this for two reasons:

* I want to use Guix channels for experimental packages, prototypes and 
pre-alpha software that should be available for some people only.
* I want to use Guix channels for production-ready packages of in-house tools 
that are only useful for private businesses. 

In both cases, the channels and software sources would be in Git repositories 
hosted by third-parties like GitLab, BitBucket, etc., which provide SSH 

There are some comments already about Chris' patch in another bug report 
( I agree that "git-fetch/impure" must not be 
used in Guix's official channel(s), but I'd like Guix to include it in its API 
for use in private channels.

I think having this functionality would make it even easier to adopt the GNU 
Guix in mainstream culture.
