Hi Ricardo,

I recently introduced Guix to some friends and writting a manifest is
one of the first task as a Guix user.

Explaining them "specification->package+output", "packages->manifest" and the
concept of multiple values in Guile was a bit tough.

So I would be in favor of adding guix package the ability to parse
manifest.json, manifest.yaml, or manifest.whatever format !
