The switch from Type=forking to simple will break units which rely on proper
ordering of subnets added by that tunnel. That look as a regression to me.

I'm using openvpn on my hosts, few of them are only reachable via its tunnel.
There is other users doing so. I suggest to maximize our chance to warn them by
using both News and post upgrade message.

Never understand that neither. As configuration need to be changed, that's a
good time for changing this path.
