I wrote the patch that adds this feature to `guix environment`. The idea
was to have a way to turn an existing profile into an environment,
specifically a container (-C), which is not possible with `source
etc/profile`. It’s also very quick, because it does not compute
anything to do that. (I think it still does, which is my bad.)

Can I ask: What is your use-case? Why not extend the existing profile
using `guix package -p /path -i foobar`?
