I'm curious about how to install an old package version with guix.

Example for what I mean:

In e.g Debian, the list of available packages is separate from apt-get (et al.). So I can query all available versions of a package and install the version I need:

 $ apt-cache madison nginx
     nginx | 1.9.10-1~bpo8+3 | jessie-backports/ma
     nginx | 1.6.2-5+deb8u2 | jessie/updates/main amd64 Pa

Now in guix, the list of available packages is build into guix, there is no external cache. So how can I e.g. install python-2.7.10 after I installed guix 0.11.0, which only defines python-2.7.11?
