Currently I run shepherd as myself, which reads from
~/.config/shepherd/init.scm.  It gets started from my ~/.xsession.

Admittedly this is a bit of a hack.  It wouldn’t be hard to define
per-user Shepherd instances as global Shepherd services in GuixSD, if
you see what I mean.

Another option would be to add support for this directly in the
Shepherd, which has pros and cons.
