It seems my original mail somehow came out wrong.

I neglected to add this important piece of information:

My local build system is a complete insane mess, and I like it that way,
however, is there some other way to make other interesting insane build
systems for emacs, that also actually work and are productive?

Without this information it sounds like everything is broken except my
build, which isnt true.

With that said, I still think its reasonable to isolate builds to have
different dependency versions, in docker, chroots, guix, etc.

Sometimes you want to have newer, or older, versions of dependencies to
try things out.
