Thank you, I enjoyed reading your rewrite, makes me happy!  Moving the
scheme side makes it cleaner and I learned about -let, nice :-)

I also like the new name better, you see that I struggled/renaed because
I wasn't happy with it.  The initial switch-profile name was simply
chosen because that's how I use it: to switch between my named profiles.

I think it's OK to go in.  The thing I'm not really happy with yet is
the UX of how to switch to temporary `guix environment ...'
environments.  You have to do: echo $GUIX_ENVIRONMENT, <select>, <cut>,
M-x guix-set-emacs-environment RET <paste> ... but I have no idea how we
could improve on that.  Thoughts?
