I think my Nix configs will hurt someone. Or possibly make someone hurt me. I'm not sure which.

So far I've done some nasty hacks to enable syntax highlighted blocks, and then found a way to modify nixPath at runtime, and then took it too far by having it automatically select a configuration file based on host name.

Oh, I also figured out how to inject my own arguments in a way that doesn't trigger Nixpkgs' infinite recursion checks

@zearen I wonder if this is the equivalent of having two halves of a soul?
