You don't _have to_ use socket activation, so it's not a prerequisite
to modify daemons to work with systemd. But of course teaching them to
become socket activated and adding a .socket unit makes startup more
efficient and dependencies simpler, so indeed it's worth doing that.
This is documented here: http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/socket-activation.html
