Interesting idea!

I would also add the following line here:

  (add-hook 'scheme-mode-hook 'guix-devel-mode)

to add Guix-specific indentation rules (particularly to indent
'modify-phases' properly).

I think this works for you because your "~/.config/guix/latest" is a
symlink to your git checkout.  But by default this can open a package
file from store, and emacs will fail to modify it, so it is better to
specify a guix checkout directory explicitly like this:

  (guix-find-location location "~/src/guix")

Actually this works for you only by chance: emacs doesn't load packages
from the guix environment, it loads packages from your system and user
profiles, so it works because you already have 'emacs-guix' installed.

Since a user knows what file (s)he wants modify, I think it is better to
avoid starting the REPL, so it will be *much faster*.  After all, I
would do it like this:

Attachment: indent-package-expr.el
Description: application/emacs-lisp

And here are the lines for the environment and running emacs (I used
'emacs-no-x' as it is not so heavy as 'emacs'):

  guix environment --ad-hoc emacs-no-x emacs-guix

  emacs -q --no-site-file --batch -l indent-package-expr.el 
/path/to/package-file.scm package-name

All that stuff can work without 'emacs-guix' (if the line with
'guix-devel-mode' scheme hook will be removed), but in this case the
package may not be indented properly.
