OK, I'll try that. My main concern was with packages I actually want to run. 
For example, last time I wanted to update the Neovim version, so I changed the 
definition and installed Neovim in order to try it out a bit. But doing so 
replaced my previous Neovim installation. I know the old one was still in the 
store, but if I had borked the update I would have had the problem that my 
text editor, which is what I use to edit Guile scripts, was messed up.

It's not a major problem, but still an annoyance. Perhaps instead of `install` 
I should have done `environment --ad-hoc`.
