Well, yes, the idea is that that just works. However, this is kinda
broken if the systemd instance managing your scope is not PID 1, as we
don't get SIGCHLD then. 

Do you create any subcgroups? presumably not?

Normally it should just work then, but I must admit that --user scopes
got much less testing that system scopes...
