Guix maybe, for a developer system you run out of RAM for everything
that has serious demands in RAM and/or Diskspace for building.

If waste of writes is your concern, getting a separate disk for
/tmp is a good choice. As long as you don't have to build big
applications from source/without substitutes tmpfs is alright.

Been there, tried that and considered it now only for machines that
will never build anything big.
