[arch-general] Forking daemons and systemd

	I was wondering whether there is a guideline regarding using
Type=forking daemons in systemd units. For instance, if a daemon supports a
cmdline switch to run in foreground isn't it better to use this argument in
	Personally, I was bitten by this with haveged.service which fails on
shutdown and whose unit has Type=forking, but I also noticed that ntpd is
allowed to fork. Both of them support foreground operation (haveged -F and
ntpd -n respectively)?
