exim4 is one example, and it adds some extra complexity. An exim4
daemon does two jobs: Running the queue and listening for SMTP.
Currently, you can configure in /etc/default/exim4 whether you want
both jobs to be done by the same daemon, two dedicated daemons or only
one doing one of the jobs. Additionally, there is a special mode for
ppp-connected systems.

How would I do this with systemd?

Please don't get me wrong: I like the ideas behind systemd, but I need
some more input to decide whether it's actually as flexible as an init
