Neat.  For me the answer is, I don't know :)  I thought with guix system
init you had to do a bunch of partitiony type things?  Certainly if I
had a blank scratch space I could do that.

In hindsight it is something of a miracle that "reconfigure" worked on a
previously non-GuixSD system.  Strange.  I will accept it though :)
