For the record, such command (as “profile manager”) had been discussed,
for example:


Note that the (still experimental and) undocumented GUIX_EXTENSIONS_PATH
allows to test new commands design without writing them in stone.
Basically, set the variable GUIX_EXTENSIONS_PATH to the path containing
the Guix module ’(guix extensions profile)’ then “guix help” should list
the extension and “guix profile” should work.
