Again: systemd ist *one of many* init solutions and I guess, that Klaus doesn't 
use a distribution with systemd.

IMHO the "systemd people" will have to create some kind of "adapter script" (and 
maybe just call it "runvdr" ;) ).

"runvdr-extreme" comes with a solution to enable/disable plugins from the VDR 
GUI. Maybe that would fit as a base for systemd startup.
