Okay, be your own testpilot:
A quick 'guix system build config.scm' and before reconfiguring
inserting my values into the then new generated
/var/lib/tor/hidden-services/foo/ and the files in there, then running
reconfigure, rebooting and I can connect to my hostname(s).

moving on, this could be improved:
In case one aims for keeping the config public this is a bad idea but
what about creating the hostname + private_key in $name as plain-file?
Would this be overwritten by (tor-hidden-service) or would this just be
bad practice but "whatever works for you"?
