If you do that with the --noscripts then will it really kill the process?  
Nothing should invoke the systemd commands with that, should it?  Or do you 
mean taking the libraries, etc, away out underneath of the running process 
will cause it to crash?

Might be worth testing that on on a VM to see if it will happen.

Best of luck!
