don't get me wrong but as you are a beginner to systemd stuff why don't
you just start with ordinary unit files in /etc/systemd/system as
erevrybody else does so you can get warm with systemd, systemctl and so on?

i use systemd now for 7 years on all sort of setups from firewalls over
workstations to production servers and wrote a ton of systemd units and
targs but never had any need to even consider generators at all
