Hi again!)

I have a plan to have a system service, which accepts list of pairs of
user name and home-environment and instantiates home environments for
these users during `guix system reconfigure`, but the task has a low
priority right now.  You can try to implement it yourself and send a
patch for review or can wait until someone will do it.

P.S. It doesn't have to be a separate service, maybe extending some
existing record with additional field will also work.

Best regards,
