Hi Jan, have you been working on this?  My new qmk-supported keyboard is
coming and I'd love to be able to flash it with guix.

I built qmk-firmware in guix (but there are bundled dependencies that
still need to be removed).

I was planning to use mugur with it, which calls

make -C source-path keyboard:type

So, my first idea (which should apply to qmk-cli too) was to patch this
to call guix build --with-source and hopefully get this working, but I
don't know how robust this is (or if it is even going to work).

(I'll also have to package, but it does not
seem to require qmk-cli)
