I noticed that the ‘guix home import’ subcommand is included, but I
think it needs more thought and feedback from people before it makes its
way into ‘master’; it also seems to lack documentation.

I just realized that it generates the following service declaration

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
   (list (slurp-file-gexp
          (local-file "/home/yoctocell/.bashrc"))))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

but when running ‘guix home reconfigure’, the ~/.bashrc file will be
moved, so when running ‘guix home reconfigure’ for the second time, it
would read the ~/.bashrc which is itself a symlink to a file the store.
‘guix home import’ clearly isn’t in a usable state as of right now…
