There is no REPL magic.  I write the service in chunks that I *could*
run separately (like the start command).  The rest I just write, and
then build a system with “guix system build” until it works.

No, I don’t.  I answered a vague question with what I hoped would be

just met with a barrage of criticism, so I won’t expose myself to this
