I concur with Clément here.

However, I think there might be value for better support of multi-user
systems.  :-)  That is, in some contexts such as HPC clusters or even
simply multi-user laptops, it might be useful for root to run “guix pull
--all” or something, and have all the user Guixes updated, or maybe only
for users who have never run ‘guix pull’.

Food for thought…
