I think I have an answer for the OS config: pass the --profile option to guix package, so the guix package command becomes 'guix package --profile=/var/guix/profiles/system/profile -I'

Although the code above doesn't take into account build inputs and
packages that are in your binaries' paths. For that my two initial ideas
are 'guix package -I | cut -f1 | sort -u | xargs guix size' or
'guix package -I | cut -f1 | sort -u | guix refresh --list-transitive'
and some more shell scripting to get the package and version.

Yes, I did want to inputs in the list as well. However, I worry that calculating these by passing package names to the current guix may inadvertently list newer inputs than were used by the, potentially older, guix that instantiated the profile.
