bug#40344: inconsistent 'guix package --list-generations' for root

When I run 'sudo guix package --list-generations' on a foreign distro
I get a list of all the profiles for all the users, not just for root.
When I run 'sudo guix package --list-generations' on Guix System I get:
guix package: error: profile '/var/guix/profiles/per-user/root/guix-profile' 
does not exist

1: it probably shouldn't error if the default profile doesn't exist
2: I like the idea of root being able to, say, clean up all the profiles
over a certain age (ie.: guix package --delete-generations 6m). On the
other hand it is unexpected behavior since root is "just another user"
