side chain repo

Building a set of related packages looks very much like a channel, so
how to build a channel?

https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/2793
https://nixos.org/nix/manual/#sec-nix-push

Basically, just nix-push, some server, and nix-build / nix-env from
.nix package.  The only point of that is to make binary caches.

Just start with an ad-hoc set of packages as described in the previous
post, then start composing them.

What might be useful is hydra, to build all variants of a project from
version control.  This gives channels for free.
