Nice !
Even, the keyword `run` seems  more talkative than `procedure`.

However, I am a bit lost. Does this process still work?

process: sleep
  packages "coreutils"
  run '(begin (display "Sleeping...\n")
                    (system* "sleep" "10"))

For consistency, why not?
  run # guile {

And, is it better to declare explicitly "coreutils" as package input
when using bash?
Or implicitly? For example, if `run # python {}` is used then the
package input is implicitly python.
What do you think?

All the best,
