So how exactly does dnsmasq signal readiness if it's run in foreground?
It does neither implement sd_notify nor use D-Bus activation.
So there is no way for systemd to know when it's ready to accept
connections. As a result, daemon, which depend on dnsmasq would be
started immediately once the dnsmasq binary has been spawned.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
