nixos at home would be impossible to secure until derivations are bit-for-bit
identical on multiple builds. Then you could do something like, have 1000
builders, and if 501 builders get the same output hash for a derivation, it
gets accepted on the public ledger of input/output hashes. Grow the
builders as the popularity of NixOS grows. You need to subvert a majority
of builders to subvert the binaries.

...but we don't have bit-identical builds... yet.
