Hi,

This bug replaces Bug#41180, which is apparently too old to trigger a CI
pipeline. The patch also required changes because listing serializers "after"
the docstring has been deprecated.

The serializers are still after the docstring but now use some form of record
syntax starting with "(serializer (..))".

Bug#41180 will be closed in the near future with a reference to this bug.

Kind regards
Felix

Thanks to Bruno Victal "mirai" for cooperating on this patch and for
generously sharing a wealth of insights about Guix services.

Thanks to Jean-Baptiste Note for an early version of this service!

We copied the kernel team as a courtesy.

Thanks to Bruno Victal "mirai" for cooperating on this patch and for
generously sharing a wealth of insights about Guix services.

Thanks to Jean-Baptiste Note for an early version of this service!

+The Cachefilesd service starts a daemon that caches network filesystem
