I think the backtrace, ahem, very clearly shows what’s wrong.

(Suddenly I’m scared: what if this backtrace gave you the same feeling
that I have when I get a C++ compilation error?!)

What I had in mind was just to add ‘compose’ and ‘extend’ to
‘nginx-service-type’ (this is where we define how extensions are
handled).  There’s a bit of extra bookeeping to do, in particular moving
the list of vhosts to <nginx-configuration>, as in this untested patch:
With that in place, it becomes possible to write another service that
provides additional vhosts, like:

  (define vh
    (nginx-vhost-configuration …))

  (define foo
    (service-type (name 'foo)
                  (extensions (list (service-extension nginx-service-type
                                                       (const (list vh)))))))

or simply:

  (simple-service 'my-extra-vhost nginx-service-type (list vh))

Does that make sense?

Of course feel free to start from the patch above!
