I think it would be a good idea to install the symlink with "make
install", with a configure option to disable this. My impression is
that with system services it's frowned upon to forcibly enable units -
distributions are expected to use the preset mechanism instead - but if
the preset mechanism doesn't work (or isn't used) with user services,
it seems better to enable the service by default.
I probably won't work on this in the near future, however. Would you
like to write a patch?
