@shlevy I'd happily test this, but I fail to understand what it improves exactly.

@domenkozar With this you can import a hydra-built channel in nix and use the packages there as build inputs etc., and they will be fetched from the cache as-needed. Before the channels were only usable with nix-env.

@aszlig is there any reason to keep these old style channels alive? Besides that it's easier to set them up initially?
