Various ways to deal with that:

1. Change the Exec=/usr/libexec/food to

2. Add some hook support in the systemd config files.

3. Add support for switching specific services back to using the
initscript even when booting with systemd.

But on the other hand, shell scripts can be optimised too. Maybe the awk
call is redundant anyway? Maybe something like foo="${bar%.conf}" would
be enough?


Someday I should go on a rampage and submit patches that add "set -e;
set -o pipefail" to the start of every shell script in the distro. Or
maybe not...
