Well, the original plan was to eventually distribute (signed) Guix
binary packages over GNUnet. Guix can download binary packages from
various sources, so GNUnet would just be another source. The tricky bit
is to create a binding between the GNUnet URL and the Guix package. This
could be done by anyone creating the binary package signing the
association (assuming perfect deterministic builds).  Also, the idea was
that everybody shares all the binaries they built from source (or
installed), as that takes no significant extra storage.

But, realistically speaking, before that can happen, we need to improve
GNUnet performance, which isn't really an issue for bindings.
