The networking service currently does not offer a way to configure a
bonding interface (e.g. joining two physical network interfaces to one
bonded network interface).

This would be a very useful thing to have for berlin.guixsd.org, which
has quite a few dedicated NICs.

Well, there is one way, through Open vSwitch, but it's rather
heavy-handed if all you need is 802.3ad.

It would be good to have "libteam" as a lightweight alternative.
