We also discussed “guix run icecat” as a simpler option:

‘guix run’ can guess parts of the profile, like whether the application
needs X11 or Fontconfig stuff, just by looking at the references of the
application.  That said, I’m curious to see what the Firejail profiles
look like and to what extent we’d need to manually annotate packages if
we were to provide similar functionality.

Firejail looks nice!
