    services: Add SRFI-26 to Nix activation gexp.
Fix the following fatal error on ‘guix system reconfigure’:

[Huge backtrace snipped, who adds stuff like that.]

* gnu/services/nix.scm (nix-activation): Import and use (srfi srfi-26).

FWIW, I don't think we should normally have backtraces like this in our commit log. Certainly in this case, the error was sufficiently obvious,
and the backtrace doesn't add much useful information.

I included it because (this implies there was more deliberation involved than there was) the bug was reported on IRC, in an ephemeral paste. For the record, I wouldn't have done so if there'd been a regular bug report.

What do you think?

Nothing, really. I have so many opinions already, I can't bring myself to have one on this matter. Whatever you say :-)

Kind regards,
