Sure, but program-arguments are not defined in (gnu …) and it is a
(guix scripts …) that eventually pulls in %package-module-path.
Therefore defining %guix-initial-program-arguments (or whatever it will
be called in the end) in (guix describe) still seems like an option to

With that however, I am no longer so sure. The initial program
arguments are part of the UI, but at the same time, that would make it
not UI-free to begin with. Kinda strengthens the argument, that it
should be made a fluid/parameter/what have you, that gets initialized
with program-arguments at some point.
