On-demand linked libraries for Nix

I think this idea being pursued by Mic92 is pretty cool!

The repository is not there yet and at the moment provides only the ability to set a custom LD_LIBRARY_PATH for non-NixOS binaries; but I explain some mind-blowing opportunities that can be done with nix-index for instance.


The process of finding the dependencies is roughly what I do manually anyway, with some heuristic about which package is appropriate for the dependency in question. This would be a nice alternative to steam-run and can allow some use of non-packaged software.
