[arch-dev-public] systemd units for ppp and watchdog

While creating systemd units for my packages, I found two problems:

1) I cannot force pppd fork to the background. While it is the default
behaviour, the user can override that with the 'nodetach' and 'updetach'
configuration options.

Should I use Type=simple and force the 'nodetach' option on pppd?

2) systemd has built-in watchdog functionality. Should I omit systemd
units for watchdog? With systemd, I don't need it anymore.
