Ouch, thanks for the explanation.

Do you mean to "#:select" condition types in (guix ui)?  I tried but it
failed for me even on “make” (the patch I tried and the make output are
attached).  So it looks like even selecting from (guix profile) won't
work in (guix ui) or did I miss something?

What about making an auxiliary (guix conditions) module with all
existing condition types, and use it where needed?  I could try to work
on it if it sounds reasonable.  WDYT?
