Sounds fine! I added a "fork+exec-command/container" in (gnu build
shepherd) module, that uses "container-excursion" to enter the
namespaces of the process passed as argument.
I also took your other remarks into account and pushed this
serie. Thanks a lot for diving into this harsh stuff :).
Locally, the installer tests behave fine, but I'll monitor the CI to see
how it goes.
Now, the only installation test failure I'm aware of is
https://issues.guix.gnu.org/41948. The good news, is that I have a Guile
patch that seem to solve it.
