How does shepherd work on a non-guix system? Can’t be it be configured
like other daemons to read its configuration from a file, e.g. from


and be told via signal to reload its configuration from disk?


(I feel a bit cheated right now. This behaviour makes Guix System entirely
unsuitable for server use. It shouldn’t be advertised as supporting
transactional upgrades and rollbacks if those require a reboot.)
