I decided to give it a try, and to create a service file for a small
package I maintain (marionnet). Here is some feedback:

1) booting with systemd.
It failed at first, because I was mounting the cgroup virtual fs under
/cgroup for some reason. The error message was not so obvious. I'm not
sure if it's a common problem. If it is, it might be worth checking for
that before it's too late.

2) creating a service file. 
http://wiki.debian.org/Systemd/Packaging points to
but that manpage does not include any example. It would be nice to
provide a couple of very basic service files. Or a skeleton one, with

All in all, it was easier than I expected.

Is there a way to list services installed on my system that are managed
via service files, vs those that are managed using legacy init scripts?
I'm thinking of something like rc-alert or wnpp-alert.
