    initial v1  
    1111Additionally, nix doesn't even need root at all. It would be a perfectly viable replacement to sage's own build system for sage-development purposes. I already thought about suggesting that in the past, but I didn't since I don't have the time to work on it / convince people myself.

     13Edit: Now that I think about it I think I did suggest it once. One downside was that there would be no cygwin support, just WSL. Or someone would have to work on reviving nix on cygwin, not sure what it's current state is.

    1315I agree with Erik and François that adding a package juts for configuration makes things a bit more difficult, at least for packagers. Instead of patching a file, we now have to add another python package and essentially re-write it.
