I had an idea/suggestion. How about adding "guix system -u" feature to guix? So 
the difference between "guix system reconfigure" and "guix system -u" would be; 
the former does the reconfiguration cum upgrade process whereas the latter does 
just the upgrade process to system packages in the existing configuration.
