once the unitAdded/unitRemoved signals are added to QsdManager, then those can
easily be hooked up in the engine.
is there a way to get notified from systemd when a unit changes activation or
load state? because those would also be useful in the engine, obviously.
with those in place, there really isn't much more needed in the engine: there
are no dynamic sources (they are all push-published by systemd; so no
sourceRequestEvent implementation is needed) and polling makes no sense (so
updateSourceEvent is unecessary to implement)
the only thing that might be interesting is to provide a serviceForSource
implementation that allows interacting with a unit, if a user is able to do
anything useful (such as activate/deactive a unit?). i'm not sure that's
possible though; if not then a Service is also unecessary.
