Yes, absolutely, but this only works for a subset of units: it 
wouldn't be practical to override every unit on the system in 
order to monit for failures.  Currently, I have a cron job that runs 
"systemctl --failed" and mails me the output if it's not an empty 
list.  It would be nice to have a more elegant solution than that to 
monitor for unexpected failures.
