Hi Alex,

Thank you for this new release. I am enjoying the cool new features!

FWIW, ISTM this use of "C-u" is more global than typical and thus feels
a bit counter-intuitive. Since you have made it very easy to jump
between profiles in *Guix Profiles* I think it would be good to switch
to using "C-u" for more command-specific modifications. This might also
help avoid "function bloat in emacs-guix."
