Trouble with 'guix download'

I'd like to install Python 3.6.3 with Guix, but Guix only has a package
for 3.5.3. I'm trying to see if I can write my own package definition.
I'm currently stuck trying to use 'guix download'. This is what I get:

$ guix download

Starting download of /tmp/guix-file.E66CkS
ERROR: Wrong type to apply: #<syntax-transformer uri?>
failed to download "/tmp/guix-file.E66CkS" from 
guix download: error: download failed

I'm not sure what to do next.

I have a broader question: I don't know if Guix is designed to make it
easy for users to have their own personal package definitions. Would it
be simpler for me to change the package in the Guix codebase and do a
pull request than to write my own package?
