This is a very cool hack!

It might make sense to turn it into a service in GuixSD proper, because
I suspect it’s a use case that people may be interested in.  So you
would write, say:

  (service auto-build-service
             (manifest (local-file …))
             (load-path '("/home/alice/…"))))

and it would do the right thing.  WDYT?

BTW, I think it’s the kind of experience report that would be worth
turning into a blog post on our web site.  It’s always interesting to
see how people solve specific problems with the tools.
