As I stated in another message, backward compatibility is not a concern
here from the Guix POV (of course it’s a concern for those who were
already using pre-merge Guix Home, but for Guix all these APIs are new.)

(As an aside, part of the reason I asked a few days ago to have more
time for review was precisely so we could refine the APIs before it goes

I would very much like to have these modules renamed to (gnu home
services …) quickly.  WDYT?  Could the two of you take a look?
