I do care about multi-input-method setups, so it is one of the earliest
home services, also in rde features I provide emacs-input-method
feature, which I find quite useful too:

Yes, home-state-service perfectly covers this use case, however I do not
recommend to use it, because probably I'll refactor it quite hard sooner
or later.  For now you can consider it to be in alpha state.  Usage
example is here:

Probably I need to add Guix Home configs collection section to rde repo
README to make it easier for people to explore other's configurations)
