It now works with the (service openssh-service-type).  I did not change
the default configuration.  I feel a bit fuzzy about the exact keywords
used, sometimes services take only one keyword:

  (services (cons* (xfce-desktop-service)
                   (service openssh-service-type)

For XFCE we use a singlet, whereas for OpenSSH a pair is used.  Must
one use such a pair if there are (optionally) configuration parameters
to be defined for the respective service?

The syntax of the ssh module import at the top of my profile is a bit
different, but it seems to work (

I am starting to understand the generals of the system.

Thank you for the help!
