Hi, I've updated the pkgbuild for nix 1.10 thanks in advance.

For example, I'd like to use the system binary for `ghc` (currently version 7.10.1) but I also would like to use other versions of `ghc` installed with nix. If the nix path takes preference the name `ghc` is bound to any `ghc` installed with nix, regardless of its version. OTOH, if the system path takes preference, if I want to use the version from nix I just have to append the version, i.e. `ghc-7.6.3` (from nix) vs `ghc` (7.10.1 from arch).

I ended up using `systemd-nspawn` containers for this concrete case, so now I don't mind nix path taking preference that much.

(sorry for my late reply, I forgot to tick "watch notifications")

I don't have any strong opinion on what makes more sense, but so far I've had no issue with the updated $PATH that gives preference to nix binaries. Do you have a case in point where this behavior hurts ?

The Nix `/bin/` and `/sbin` get prepended to the global $PATH, giving preference to the Nix binaries instead of Arch ones. Wouldn't it make more sense, specially since this is an Arch specific package, to give preference to the system binaries?

I could submit a patch with some sed magic if you agree.

I'm trying to set up the multiuser environment and am find that the nix-daemon.service file does not have an [Install] section, so it cannot be added using "systemctl enable ...". Could we patch this perhaps? I think the following is all that is needed:
