Thank you for this tip. I thought it was being started by Shepherd
because the process becomes a child of Shepherd after it is auto
started. Adding this line to my configuration does help. PulseAudio no
longer aggressively starts itself if I stop my pipewire-pulse service.

Unfortunately some packages on my system (the primary package that comes
to mind I cannot specifically say, but it comes from a different
channel) depend on PulseAudio, and will manually start it if it is not
running when I start the application.

I am hoping for some way to do something equivalent to masking a package
in Gentoo[1], so I can avoid having PulseAudio installed at all. I
realize something like this might depend on package parameterization[2],
but if there is some hacky way to do this with the current version of
Guix, suggestions would be appreciated!
