Right, and that's how all other units look like too, and the manpages
don't say that extra space is allowed either (in fact it is explicitly
not between e. g. '!' or '|' and the program name).

So, please feel free to file a minor bug against deb-systemd-helper,
but I wouldn't recommend shipping units like that.
