Best see the source if you want details, as it's relatively simple:
Just a heads-up that I'm working on getting this to build, if anyone
else is interested: https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/27194
So far, jigsaw / modularization does not seem to have required nearly
as many changes to the nix expression as I would've guessed. :)
I'm currently using a checked out version of the channels repository
