System-wide config

I am working my way through our IT department to convince them to provide guix 
as a service to our researchers. Specifically, we provide vms as a service and 
we also have a shared slurm resource. One question I haven’t managed to answer 
fully is about system-wide configurations. We currently use puppet to pull 
configs on the fly and various scripts to turn on or off services. (Our IT dept 
is really paranoid with security)

What is the recommended way to do this with guix system?
Does guix system play nicely with packages installed outside of guix? 
Intuitively, I’d think it can be a recipe for disaster.

The alternative of simply using guix on a host debian is appealing, of course.

Have an amazing week!
