Can you just use a Type=idle unit?

>From man systemd.service:

  Behavior of idle is very similar to simple, however actual execution
of a the service binary is delayed
  until all jobs are dispatched. This may be used to avoid interleaving
of output of shell services with the
  status output on the console.

This isn't necessarily guaranteed to be last but I think it would
generally be the case... unless I've misunderstood it.
