IMHO, it is a great package manager, especially when being concerned
about (bit-wise) reproducibility, 'slotting' various versions and fast
movement with low risk (reversible upgrades).

The one feature I miss compared to portage is the configuration via USE
flags: One could patch Guix package definitions to add compile to flags
etc, but you can't simply let the package manager resolve the
dependencies for you.
