As I might have mentioned before, people have been saying that one could
do that for years; nosh is the existence proof that it can be done, and
has been for some time. Service bundles have before/ and after/
directories encoding ordering. See the manual page for the
service-control program, and the Nosh Guide, for more. Turn on the
--verbose option to the "systemctl start" command to see it in action.
Read the /run/system-manager/log/ log on a nosh-system-manager-managed
system to see how "system-control start --verbose normal" has brought up
your system.

I don't have to write in the subjunctive about this sort of thing. (-:
