Yes that would be ideal. One day.

This is really awesome and saved the day for me. It works well! I read
up a bit on the above because wasn't that familiar with some of the
direnv magic above.

  use guix --ad-hoc ruby@2.4.3 gcc-toolchain pkg-config libxml2 libxslt
  layout ruby

Thanks a lot! This setup also works nicely with emacs-direnv.

However with an old puppet 3 project using ruby 2.1.10 setup using the below I 
get these weird
errors. Any idea?

  $ cd ~/src/fnb/puppet-main
  direnv: loading .envrc
  direnv: using guix --ad-hoc ruby@2.1.10 gcc-toolchain pkg-config libxml2 
  $ cat .envrc
  use guix --ad-hoc ruby@2.1.10 gcc-toolchain pkg-config libxml2 libxslt
  layout ruby

Was getting similar issues when running bundle there.
