I know that running pulseaudio in system mode is discouraged, but there
are valid use cases.

Is there an official upstream systemd service file for that? I found a
couple of variants on the internet, but I would prefer to use an
recommeded one?

- Is is Type simple or notify?

- Should --disallow-exit be set?

- I have found service files that use "After=sound.target dbus.service"
as well as "Before=sound.target". What is correct?

- What is it WantedBy?
