Is it not possible to set up a system-wide service for this?  I've never
taken the time to learn how screensavers or lock screens are
implemented.  I'm surprised that it requires one daemon per user (per
session?) to implement!

For the record, I haven't gotten the screen-saver/screen-locker working
in GuixSD.  Maybe by following your cue, I'll now be able to...!
