I had a quick look at the patch, and it looks good to me.

A system test would be nice. I think the important thing to test is the
Guix part of the service, so if it's possible to get it to start on a
VM, I think just checking the status of the shepherd service would be a
good test.

I think not providing a Guile configuration approach is fine as well.
