We’re using it for the build farm, and I’m also using it for a couple of
single servers.  It’s great!  :-)

What I miss the most, especially on the build farm, is the ability to
tell ‘guix deploy’ which services to restart upon completion.
Currently, like ‘guix system reconfigure’, it conservatively doesn’t
restart any running services.  However, often, you’d like it to run
“herd restart X” upon completion.

Another thing discussed at the Guix Days, but more relevant to more
advanced use cases, is the ability to define “roles”: often you’d rather
want to think in terms of the services machines offer and abstract over
the actual machines.
