"guix show" would be nice.
But I did not feel a lot of enthusiasm about it. ;-)

Something nicer should be to have aliases defined by the user.

Me neither. :-)

And "guix itself" fixes implicitly the profile to
~/.config/guix/current and maybe people are doing "non-conventional"
stuff as "guix pull -p ~/.guix-profile --list-generations".

"guix pull --list-generations" should be aliased to "guix log"
"guix pull --delete-generations" -> "guix log --delete-generations"
"guix pull --switch-generations" -> "guix log --switch-generations"
"guix pull --news" -> "guix log --news"

All the best,
