For what it is worth we have been calling "systemd-tmpfiles --create
$pkgname.conf" in post-install for a long time in Arch (since the
beginning I think), and it doesn't seem to be a big problem. However,
if you have some idea for simplifying it somehow, I'd be all for that
of course :-)

Maybe establish an implicit link between foo.service and
tmpfiles.d/foo.conf, which would allow calling systemd-tmpfiles
--create/--clean before/after start/stop? Not sure if it is really
worth it, and not sure there won't be regressions though...
