There’s a rather widespread convention for ‘guix.scm’, to be passed to
‘guix environment -l’ or ‘guix package -f’.

However, there’s currently no tool to declare the container parameters,
which is why your ‘.guix-deploy’ file above is essentially a shell

A long time ago Dave Thompson suggested having an <environment> (or
similar) data type on top of <manifest>, which would describe that sort
of thing.  Perhaps something to keep in mind for ‘guix shell’?
