This is true, but I would argue that the error message is not quite as
clear as you say.  Specifically, it does not mention “ad-hoc” at all.
I’ve attached a patch that so that the command

    $ guix environment guix -- ad-hoc


    guix environment: error: ad-hoc: command not found

and exits with status 127.  (In imitation of “bash -c 'ad-hoc'”.)
