How do you come to that conclusion?  It's not like you need to be a C
programmer to debug CSS files or a C programmer to debug Makefiles.

sed -i 's|\(ExecStart=-?\)\(.*\)|\1strace -o /tmp/foo.out \2|' foo.service
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl restart foo.service

so not particularly hard.

(Often you can get away with just doing systemctl restart foo.service;
strace -p $(pidof process), but I guess you'd consider that
cheating. :-)
