* Extend 'guix environment' to cover use-cases that people currently
use docker-compose for
* Improve UX of 'guix environment' by using sane defaults and
conventions such as reading from 'guix.scm' file in current directory
* Add a small-scale, general-purpose, "serverless" computing
environment a la AWS Lambda using g-expressions + call-with-container
+ a web server
* Improve portable application bundles so that only files needed at
runtime (no headers, docs, etc.) are included somehow (not sure how to
do this one)
* Allow system services to run unprivileged (perhaps via user
namespaces) so that each user may have their own shepherd instance
(would be useful for other features, too, such as the first item in
this list)

That's all I've got for now. :)
