At first I though guix would install the packages, but Emacs would be
unable to look them up on the store. I didn't realize the final profile
would setup Emacs to correctly look them up.

So I was missing an 'emacsWithPackage' tool that would do that binding,
but it doesn't actually seem necessary.

Using a manifest seems a good solution, I'll try it out.

Thanks for the code snippet too. Hopefull I'll get it working and
write/blog about it.
