Thanks, Adam, I'll have to try this. It's hard to know how much of the
issues with NetworkManager+VPNs is a GuixSD-specific issue and how much
is just NetworkManager (on my Arch machine, I have to connect to openvpn
'by hand', it won't connect through NetworkManager; but on my
Bedrock/pieces-from-a-bunch-of-different-distros machine, OpenVPN 'just
works' directly in NetworkManager).
