Thanks for taking a look Ricardo. I'm unsure, this DBus/Polkit stuff is
still a bit of a mystery to me. These files are put in place by the
service [1], and I think that's what makes it do stuff...


I guess it entirely depends on the configuration for DBus and Polkit in
Guix, but I can't see similar things in /run/current-system/profile/etc/
so I'm guessing it's not currently possible to make this work through
the system profile.
