starting a window manager with xinitrc

Hello, Guix users. I've managed to get GuixSD running and am enjoying it
so far. To begin learning about the system, though, I am trying to set
up a minimal environment, and am having some trouble figuring things out.

Specifically, I use the Emacs X Window Manager (found at, usually called exwm. What I can't
figure out is how to ``properly'' get exwm to be my primary window
manager, and to start from the login manager. Usually setting up exwm is
as simple as installing it from elpa, and then copying/linking the
provided xinitrc to the user's home directory. But I can't figure out
the equivalent method for GuixSD. Can someone point me in the right
direction? Thank you.
