Thank you for the feedback Ludo. I read the article and made some
customizations, but something about setting the gnome-custom package is
still resulting in the regular gnome meta-package being used. I did some
interactive debugging using Guile, and it seems like nautilus is being
successfully removed, which is why my suspicion is on the package
setting being invalid. I've also tried a myriad of different ways of
setting the gnome-custom package, none of which seem to be resulting in
nautilus being removed. This isn't about "nautilus" per-say, but rather
being able to customize how gnome is used on my system.

Here is my current config.

(use-modules (gnu) (gnu system nss) (guix packages) (srfi srfi-1) (ice-9 match))
(use-service-modules desktop)
(use-package-modules certs gnome)

(define-public gnome-custom
    (package (inherit gnome)
      (name "gnome-custom")
      (propagated-inputs (remove
                             ((name _)
                              (string=? name "nautilus")))
                           (package-propagated-inputs gnome)))))



(services (cons* (gnome-desktop-service
                    #:config (gnome-desktop-configuration
                              (gnome-package gnome-custom)))

Any ideas?
