Thanks Jan. I've had another look at this, and I've got something
working with my current guix environment approach.

However, I've done this by getting the proc passed to cuirass to
execute a command which outputs the job definitions (in the same format
as the evaluate command).

This isn't very elegant, as it means that the data goes through a
rather convoluted path.

I guess that the environment could be set at the point the
specifications are created, but I'm not sure how to do that yet.
