+                <para>If a service is requested under a certain name
+                but no unit configuration file is found, systemd looks
+                for a SysV init script by the same name (with the
+                <filename>.service</filename> suffix removed) and
+                dynamically creates a service unit from that
+                script. This is useful for compatibility with
+                SysV.</para>
