12 I was just looking at that and thinking the same thing. Nothing is
13 really forcing rpcbind to load the way things are specified right now.
14 If a service really requires another service to operate, it should say
15 that. There is no problem doing that via a target, but then the
16 target still needs to pull it in.
18 There seems a general tendency in systemd to express dependencies as
19 "after" instead of "requires." That is fine if the service doesn't
20 really require something else, but if there really is a true
21 dependency then it just causes problems when somebody doesn't notice
22 and fails to enable the other unit.
