So, we don't really care about installations without pam_systemd
upstream regarding this. However, logind is actually responsible for
killing user process on logout if that's configured via logind.conf.
sulogin generally does not set up a PAM session, and we indeed should
allow processes like screen staying around in such a context. Hence
KillMode=process is actually the right choice for all these services,
Hence I figure the status quo for all of this is pretty OK already...
