 I thought the whole point of systemd was to deal with these kind of
issues ... by holding the socket open and allowing services more freedom
to not block.

 I don't believe you have much control on when (or at least I recall
early claims that it was irrelevant) - rather you have control on what
depends on what - so nfs should depend on network but it should do so in
a non-blocking way ...

 Sadly with complexity comes ... more complexity ... this may simply be
a case of the unit file needing more work.

 Systemd unit file repairman ?
