Because #:substitutable? isn't set appropriately in dependents,

someone using the substitute server might have a sufficiently
system configuration to do substitution of a store item
copy of the ZFS binary.
So, simply using ZFS in ‘kernel-loadable-modules’ would be enough
to trigger this misbehavior? That sounds like a pretty serious
issue. Would it be possible to have the substitute servers filter
on the #:substitutable flag?
This is getting out of scope, though. I don't really want this
patch to go in without /some/ documentation regarding how modules
get looked up, so if anyone has an alternate module and use-case,
I'll just swap it in for the ZFS one.
