In practice, ‘nice to have later’ becomes virtually never, see e.g. not
building dependencies again and again and not having to build dozens of
variants of a package (go-build-system (*) and cargo-build-system (**).
As such, I'd rather have ‘now’.

Also, this sounds like adding a new feature (multiple profiles for Guix
Home) at cost of an extra (known) bug (these multiple profiles don't
share search paths).

(*) used to be reasonable 4 years ago, marked as ‘not a blocker’ and
then neglected, see
(**) Currently being addressed with antioxidant-build-system (WIP)
