What about moving home services to (gnu services ...)?

It's a little harder, because we probably will need to adjust `guix
system search` and `guix home search`, but other than that seems not too

However, I'm quite ok with (gnu home services ...), just asking to avoid
one more migration later.

Let me know, which option seems better to you, I can take this task
