I think you’d need to include the ‘call-with-service-upgrade-info’ call
in the service-upgrade program that (guix scripts system reconfigure)
produces.  It’s an important part of reconfiguration.

However, ‘call-with-service-upgrade-info’ relies on (guix graph), which
pulls in (guix monads) and many modules that we don’t actually need.

It’s probably just an annoyance more than a real problem, but I think we
should eventually change the (guix graph) API so that it no longer
relies on the ‘%store-monad’, which in turn will make it a better fit in
this context.

Thanks for quickly hacking on this!
