Fast `guix environment --container' switch

Hi Guix!

`guix environment --container ... -- my-foo-program` is great but a bit
slow to start.

Is there a way to speed this up?

I know that without --container, one can use --root to create a link and
source the etc/profile from there.

Is it possible to switch to such a root in a container?

Alternatively, how do you load a etc/profile purely, i.e. without
inheriting from the parent environment, just like --pure does?
