bug#20722: Cannot rerun 'guix system init'

Hello Guix,

I ran into this issue while doing a fresh install of Guix 0.8.2. I had a typo in my declaration of the grub device (I had unintentionally left out the leading "/" on "/dev/sda"), so 'guix system init' failed when setting up grub. I fixed the typo in the OS config and reran 'guix system init' but was greeted by an error about existing store directories.

I ended up needing to remove the /mnt/var, /mnt/grub, and /mnt/gnu/store before being able to successfully rerun 'guix system init'.

It would be useful for newcomers if recovering from mistakes were more trivial.
