Well, Zbigniew made a good point, and there are other cases where we
ship a unit file for something that is maintained outside of systemd, so
maybe leave it as is...

Forking sucks... I like the simplicity of having "one-liners" in unit
files, if you get what i mean... And it sounds so wrong having to invoke
mkdir for a dir in /run exlicitly when prepping for a tool that, well,
is mostly concerned with creating dirs in /run. I'd rather prefer to
hide that fact... ;-)
