[bug#40312] [PATCH 0/3]: Add Piper and libratbag

So this program Piper is unique in that it is entirely useless without the the ratbagd daemon running. eventually, I'd like for a user to be able to install all that in 1 click from a GUI with just their sudo password if needed.

For now, I've included in the descriptions a simple service that makes it work.

With systemd systems, when Piper is opened and dbus automagically starts ratbagd, systemctl lists it as a ratbagd.service. systemctl stop ratbagd.service can the stop it if needed. With the simple service I've provided in the descriptions, herd status does not list it as a service and only reconfiguring can disable it... I think.

Is there a way I can write a service that shows ratbag in herd status, and can start/stop it correctly? Or does herd not have the ability to treat dbus services as first class services?

N.B, if you want to test the package you can just run sudo ratbagd, then open piper. if it says cannot find any devices, that means it working but you wont be able to use it without one of the supported devices to play with..
