raito b8cb7abcf0 chore: rebrand Nix to Lix when it makes sense
Here's my guide so far:

$ rg '((?!(recursive).*) Nix
-g '!doc/' --pcre2

All items from this query have been tackled. For the documentation side:
that's for #162.

Additionally, all remaining references to which
were not relevant were also replaced.

Fixes: #148.
Fixes: #162.
