  I think another full compilation would be necessary, because
incremental compilations are hard in the current state. It shouldn't be much
of a problem though: even a full compilation should be quick enough.
Probably O(n log n), which is fine for 1000ish atoms. If it's really too
slow, I'll think about incremental compilation, but I don't want to
prematurely optimize.

  Adding the extra service without restarting everything is the point of
s6-rc-update, which I would like to get more ideas on.
