> In particular, socket activation means you can launch services A, B, and C in parallel, even though B and C depend on A, because systemd has already created A's socket before launching A, B, and C.

Even better, you can launch A, B, and C in parallel even if A depends on B, which depends on C, which depends on A. Circular dependencies between services are not a problem. You just have to avoid creating deadlocks where there are circular dependencies in the *responses*. Try doing that without socket activation! There is no way to start such services sequentially; all the sockets have to exist before any of the services can start.
