<atheia>Simply renaming provides to something new then works
<civodul>then maybe dmd should have a "remove" action to remove a service
<atheia>So I think it may have to do with the requirements for #:provides to be unique (which makes sense), and by not having a mechanism for 'redefining' or 'overriding' the pervious definition of the service identified by #:provides.
<atheia>Cool, I'd be pretty interested in adding the 'remove' action approach to my to do list for the short-term-ish. The unix-domain socket thing sounds a little more involved (might take a little longer from my side).
<civodul>atheia: great if you can do the 'remove' thing
<mark_weaver>civodul: btw, I read the slides of your recent presentation, and the stuff near the end about system configuration is very exciting! it inspired me to update guix on all my machines, including my 2F.
