Here's the unit that I've added to the debian package:


and the example override that can be used for enabling slave mode:


neither of them use --no-daemon, but instead Type=forking is specified.
What I like about this is that it makes differences between both modes
minimal, and you can switch from one to the other by simple overriding
the ExecStart instruction.

to create those, I did copy the example from Orsisir de Jong (dejean) in
issue 44 and adapt it to the debian pakaging standard (e.g. basically
add documentation).
