Thanks for sharing this Andrew, it looks awesome & I'm going to give it a try!

What do you think about changing the command? It manages user files, user services, user environment variables, the lifecycle of user sessions. So we could have "guix system" for system-level things, and "guix user" for user-level things. Similarly, many of the services you describe sound to me like they would be easier to understand what they do with names like "user-service," "user-environment-vars," etc.

I feel Guix needs something like this upstream. Whether this is the right implementation or not I'm not qualified to judge, but I'll read the source code and see what I can learn or contribute!
