Is it safe to completely take over ~/.config/systemd/user?
`~/.config/systemd/user` intended purely for units created and managed by the user manually, or are there any automated processes that expect to control it?

For example, do packages or programs ever create or manage their own files in this path, without the user explicitly requesting it?

Is it safe for me to replace this dir with a symlink to my dotfiles where I can version my units?
