That makes sense.

I’ve applied the 3 patches and confirmed that
gnu/system/examples/vm-image.tmpl, which uses SLiM, still works

However, I’ve noticed that this changes the name of the default Shepherd
service from ‘xorg-server’ to ‘xorg-server-vt7’.

What about generating an ‘xorg-server’ Shepherd service that would
depend on all the ‘xorg-server-vtN’ services?  Hmm that wouldn’t be
entirely equivalent: ‘herd start xorg-server’ would start them all, but
‘herd stop xorg-server’ wouldn’t stop any of them.

Perhaps a simple fix is, when there’s only one server launched, to have
the Shepherd service provide both ‘xorg-server-vtN’ and ‘xorg-server’.
Or to special-case vt7 such that the service for vt7 provides both
‘xorg-server’ and ‘xorg-server-vt7’.
