I like this too.

Would it make sense to have 'guix lint' operate at the file/module level
instead of at the package level?  That would be consistent with other
lint-type tools, as far as I know.  It would also, I think, help with
things like syntax errors that currently result in 'guix build'
reporting something like "guix build: error: foo: unknown package".
