if "service xdm restart" is run directly by systemd rather than within
the session, it would not
kill itself and would keep working.

And trying to run the /etc/init.d/xdm script with a shell if systemd
is in use does not work, because
it goes through systemd anyway.

It was one of the arguments of systemd superiority in the first place.
