@ng0 I wrote a proposal draft. Feel free to improve it before I post:

Just this bit already:
Acknowledged and I'm lagging behind. You can expect an answer somewhere between mid August and beginning of October.

If you would have read the chat content (which I assume you didn't), you would see some insight into the problems and what possible solutions there are.

Basically you can configure guix with your own arguments. prepending /opt/ by default would make the path in some cases too long. You can have a custome store path, but this implies that no substitutes from official, central, buildfarm will be usable (however you can run your own substitutes server). You could mount /gnu/store to /opt/guix or some other location. If you would have read the chat content (which I assume you didn't), you would see some insight into the problems and what possible solutions there are.

A switch to /opt/ seems like a great compromise that can shut up the FHS zealots. Is this something the Guix guys can do or is it for the adopting distro to handle?

@HulaHoop I think at this point we should start a discussion on guix-devel and/or whonix-devel mailinglist for this. If you read https://gnunet.org/bot/log/guix/ of 2018-03-19 around ~21:40 - 22:00 UTC (note: our log bot is not logging this at the moment it is written, so it'll appear later online) you will find a braindump one of us did + a discussion on the subject of Debian+Guix. I can not speak for the project in the position of a maintainer, this is not my position to take.
Awesome progress thanks for the updates :) Right, the advantage of Guix is precisely that it doesn't follow FHS. Its worth trying to ask for an exception from upstream no matter how slim the chances - at least there's more of a chance than never asking at all.

Back on topic. [Disclaimer: I'm just a contributor to Guix, I am not one of the maintainers.]
A recent chat with lynX made me think about an alternative approach you maybe haven't considered yet:

FYI, I started working on the tor browser package for Guix, building from source, unlike the Nix package. This is in a similar style to poncho's torbrowser-overlay for Gentoo.

A short update on torbrowser in Guix:

We are preparing for a major point release so nothing on this front is planned from our side in the short to medium term. We are on the lookout for anything coming from your side whenever you feel like it.

"We" and "ours" in the text below refers to infotropique, not Guix.

Understood and thanks for chiming in :)

I want to clarify something:
the GNUnet "guys" in this case is just myself at the moment.
Torbrowser is not considered my priority, but it will definitely happen at some point within the next years.
That's a revised priority list, as I'm currently in the process of writing infotropique OS which is currently a one person job on the development end.
I'm not getting full time paid for this, so this is worked on whenever I have the time, hopefully at least part time.
More details can be found later this year in an published handbook.
I try to keep the forks with Guix as little as possible but they are not avoidable. One of the many individual ideas is use of a different libc (musl).
Torproject software is not the priority of infotropique OS, but I'm not throwing it out, so torbrowser could still happen in either Guix or infotropique.

GNUnet guys are looking into having the Guix devs provide debs.
Jan 18 2017
The main and only purpose of getting Nix into Whonix was GNUnet. Now that Nix stopped making new debs, there is no point of considering this task further.

Such strings (from the above screenshot) would be used as user names? Probably better than anything a user could manually make up. And since there is no standard on pseudonymous user names, I don't see anything that speaks against this.

pwgen is perfect for our purposes.

Is any of these tools popular?

There's a lot of them. Anything specific we are looking for that can slim it down?
I don't think this tool is ready for prime time.

Yes, they needed to be rebuild on jessie.
