I don't understand this: do you propose to have a CLI to add system
configuration sections to a system configuration file?

Guix EDSL is much much more flexible than UCI, AFAIU it's not so easy to
have a **generic** UI to configure a Guix System (and [re]configuring
via config.scm is simply awesome)

Thinking about all this, you remembered me my preferred item in the Guix
roadmap (maybe for Guix 3 :-) )

* UI

** TODO: (local) web application to [re]configure a Guix System, possibly 
   from an existing config file or user selectable templates

To be clear: webUI should be *automatically* generated reading Guix
packages *and* Guix services to allow users to compose an
operating-system definition setting their preferred configuration
parameters (possibly with validation, but that should be **back
integrated** in Guix proper and _not_ hardcoded in the webUI)

With guix-deploy and `guix system reconfigure --host=…` this will allow
more users to orchestrate their infrastructure (with monitoring and
dashboard if programmed/integrated)

Happy Guix! Gio'
