And that is exactly why I think you will likely need to be C programmer
and understand the internals of systemd to debug your boot process and
to fix it in case you have problems.
Or if you want to do anything not explicitly supported (for example,
how easy is it with systemd to run a daemon within strace?) you might
need to replace the declarative part with a shell script part, which
most people will not be able to do easily.
