In the list of things I don't like of crapsystemd, the format
of the configuration files comes last and least :).

Games only? Whenever a user has to do repetitive tasks, giving a scripting
capability improves the user experience. And since you have this scripting
capability, handling configuration through that is a wise move.

Scripting makes a program extensible when you can't achieve extensibility
by composition with other programs.

And depending on which service a daemon does, extensibility may be
crucial or useless :).
