Changing the HTTP{,S} and FTP proxies used by guix-daemon is
inconvenient, especially when doing a GuixSD install, as reported by
Divan Santana <divan@HIDDEN> at:

  https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-guix/2017-01/msg00047.html

We should add a service-specific action to do that, like:

  herd set-http-proxy guix-daemon http://example.org

or, alternately, let guix-daemon (=E2=80=98guix substitute=E2=80=99 and =E2=
=80=98guix
perform-download=E2=80=99) honor client-provided proxy settings passed via
=E2=80=98set-build-options=E2=80=99 or similar.

Ludo=E2=80=99.
