I've looked at that before, yeah.

Here's my take:

- That proposal doesn't seem to include a Shepherd service, so we could 
  take that from mine.
- I like David's version's LOAD-PATH field; I'd include that, too.
- I don't think we should try to generate Emacs Lisp code from Scheme 
  personally I find that unclean since there isn't a one-to-one correspondence.
- I'm actually not really sure whether it's worth doing the whole thing with the
  Emacs package profile.  It's definitely neat, but would it be better to simply
  add the (transformed) packages to the HOME-PROFILE-SERVICE-TYPE extension?
