RFE: Always show status output when units are manually started stopped etc.

Description of problem:
I have been getting a lot of complaints of this from my coworkers @my_new_dayjob when introducing them to systemd and I have to agree with them.
The problem is that administrators got reassured that when a service was started stopped etc with [OK]/[FAILED] msg when they ran service foo start/stop etc from the command line.
Now they have to run two systemctl commands to get that assurance as in if the unit has started/stopped etc correctly, systemctl start/stop etc followed by systemctl status.
Now the best approach to solve this usable issue is to always run status when units are manually started/stopped etc from the command line which would be better and more informative approach for administrators then the previous behavior did.
