Installing 'guile' and 'guix' (or their Guile 3.0 equivalents) into the
user profile is the simplest solution.  Then you can just source
~/.guix-profile/etc/profile early in .bashrc, because it will contain
all the relevant variables.

Otherwise manipulating PATH and GUILE_LOAD_PATH directly seems like a
fine solution to me, but you should refer to
~/.config/guix/current/share/guile and friends instead of
/gnu/store/...guix-module-union/share/guile because the latter is prone
to being garbage collected.

Does that make sense?  It might be useful to create a dedicated user
account for this to avoid clobbering your regular dotfiles/profiles.

I don't think there is an established practice here, so your feedback on
this is very valuable!  Offloading to a Guix System will just work, of
