This is mostly “historical baggage”: before we’d define a procedure like
‘xfce-desktop-service’, where the current convention is to set users

  (service TYPE CONFIG)


  (service TYPE)

‘service’ is a record constructor: it produces a “service” object with
the given type and config.

We’ve started removing the “old-style” service procedures, but we should
keep doing that to avoid the confusion.
