The thing with XDG_CONFIG_HOME and config-directory is, that it doesn't
allow me to set config-directory directly AND requires all other
configuration to be put in the new XDG_CONFIG_HOME as well.  I
personally wouldn't mind reading all profiles from config-directory,
but I would like a way to set that to ~/.guix.

mtime will cause weird bugs if you do single upgrades of profiles. 
ctime may be acceptable, depending on how familiar one is with touch,
but I'd personally prefer reverse alphabetical because it is the
easiest to understand.

All the best,
