For me it actually caused some trouble that systemd reads rc.conf as

I'll definitely have a look at this when 189 is released. I am not sure
if we can use nspawn in ais at we might actually want to see the chroot
the real devices etc..

There are still a lot of unit files missing; we should create a todo
list. It would also be helpful to write down a simple wiki page with
some guidelines here. E.g. I am not sure if we should read those
/etc/conf.d/$damon files from the unit files as well or drop these as
the user should override unit files in /etc.

We also might need to add a little force to push the migration process.
E.g. at some point a missing unit file is a bug and might result in the
package being dropped.
