bug#37399: Guix subcommands from channels not found

Hi guix. While working on my guix-home-manager experiment, I tried to create a 
"guix home" subcommand in my channel, by creating the (guix scripts home) 

However, after pulling the right branch, with this in my channels.scm:

  (name 'home)
  (url "https://framagit.org/tyreunom/guix-home-manager.git";)
  (branch "subcommand"))

I get "guix: home: command not found".

Guix describes agrees that I have installed the right branch, and from guix 
repl, I can run:

,m (guix ui)
(run-guix-command 'home)

And it prints the test message.

From stracing the guix home invocation, I found out that guix was looking for 
the module only inside guix-module-union and my guix profile, but not inside 
"current". So either guix-module-union should be extended to contain channel 
code, or the load path modified to load a bigger union or multiple directories.

For now, setting GUILE_LOAD_PATH to load from "current" works and I can run 
guix home. I think it should work by default though.
