Won't work since one of the main things current scripts do is run some
code as root, and some other code as the target user.
Here you are forcing all the shell part to run as either the target user
(in which case the root parts won't work) or as root (in which case you
have to reimplement all the shell user changing logic systemd is
supposed to deprecate)
