[systemd-devel] [PATCH] man: be even more clear about ExecStart's first argument

here is some systemd beginners feedback, in form of a small patch.
I was able to do everything I want just by reading the man pages (very refreshing).
The only thing I stumbled upon was the the requirement of the ExecStart directive, namely that is has to start with an absolute path.
Yes, of course it is mentioned in man systemd.service, but it is kind of burried in the end of a paragraph about variables.
So i propose to mention it clearly in the first paragraph.
