I want to use a variable in a unit file. Note, I do not want an environment variable, as I do not want the variable to be visible in the service. I just want to minimize redundancy in the unit file. eg, I'd like to do something like:

[Service]
Type=simple
Variable=path=/usr/local/somepath
ExecStart=${path}/bin/executable -c ${path}/etc/blah.cfg

Can this be done without resorting to sh -c "path= $path/bin/executable ...." with an Environment directive?
