We should wait for a new Nix release or even for it to land in NixOS stable? At least add which Nix version is needed for it to work.

How should this dependency hell be handled?

nix-shell -I nixpkgs= -p nix --run "nix shell nixpkgs#gnumake nixpkgs#curl -c make update --keep-going"

We shouldn't refer to Hydra because 1) Hydra is not performant enough as a distribution server; and 2) Hydra output could be garbage-collected (they're not at the moment, but they could be).
