-<para>Nix can be used not only for rolling out packages, but also
-complete <emphasis>configurations</emphasis> of services.  This is
-done by treating all the static bits of a service (such as software
-packages, configuration files, control scripts, static web pages,
-etc.) as “packages” that can be built by Nix expressions.  As a
-result, all the features above apply to services as well: for
-instance, you can roll back a web server configuration if a
-configuration change turns out to be undesirable, you can easily have
-multiple instances of a service (e.g., a test and production server),
-and because the whole service is built in a purely functional way from
-a Nix expression, it is repeatable so you can easily reproduce the
-service on another machine.</para>
