These are basically just copy/pasted (with minor tweaks for Makefile)
from my own override file running on two systems. Since I put in the
work writing and testing these options/settings, I figured I’d share
them and possibly have them upstreamed if deemed acceptable.

[PATCH 1] tightens the unit down a good deal, which may be too much for
some people’s systems. E.g., the ReadWritePaths path is the pacman.conf
default, which is a fairly easy one to edit. If people run setups they
use paccache.service with multiple pacman caches, they probably need to
edit the .service file anyway, at with point they can also edit the
ReadWritePaths to match their setup.

[PATCH 2] basically just deprioritises that paccache process as much as
possible. I split that out since it’s not hardening and it might not be
something that would be wanted across all systems. Not sure what systems
would have this be an important service that should not be as
undisruptive as possible, but 🤷.
