Oh! It seems I overwrote it with my own .bashrc when I migrated my
dotfiles. I still think this patch is a good idea - I think we should
make /etc/skel/.bashrc contain only nice-to-have defaults, such as
changing the prompt based on $GUIX_ENVIRONMENT, and move the essential
things to /etc/bashrc. That way, overwriting the .bashrc won't break
anything important.

I guess I should follow this patch up with an adjustment to
/etc/skel/.bashrc, removing the 'source /etc/bashrc' line?
