Hmm is the usecase for this to spare administrator having to type twice 
the systemctl command on the console as in systemctl start $foo && 
systemctl enable $foo becomes "systemctl start --now $foo"

If that's the case would it not be better to simply support "systemctl 
start enable $foo" rather then introducing yet another switch for 
administrators to remember?

On top of that is not "now" a bit confusing word to be using for this 
behaviour ?
