OK!  I'm not sure what you mean by 'structural' but after a reboot, it
seems that the times are much closer to each other now:

% systemd-analyze blame
  3479ms netctl at static.service

Also, thanks for the suggestion about the profile.  I too like the
interface you have designed and hope others agree.  Keep up the
excellent start you've made with netctl!
