Our slim only supports `.xsession', which can be a shell script with
executable permission.  It accepts the session command selected by
the user, and should exec it (or something).  My is look like:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

setxkbmap dvorak
xrdb ~/.Xresources

# exec "$1" # uncomment this line to start the selected one 
exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session i3
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Yes, the most important missing one is lua-lgi.  And we don't have
other lua packages too, so I think it's most about figure out
how lua packages should works (finding them during applications
build and running) in guix.
