Many packages in core/extra have systemd support (i.e. they install
systemd units in /lib/systemd/system), and we expect even more to get
this in the future.

For the time being, you'd probably also want systemd-units-arch and/or
initscripts-systemd from community in order to make systemd work well,
but we expect this not to be the case for much longer.
