Have you tried starting the browser with systemd?

It would be very nice if that worked. You can have systemd restart it
if it crashes etc.

Sounds nice. OTOH, now I've been told that you don't actually need
that, if you configure the systemd system units properly.

It would be very interesting to hear if that worked in a systemd user
unit. AFAICT, what you have is a system unit.

So, there are several ways to go about it. Have everything as system
units that set up the session, have your auto-login system unit and
use user units for weston and browser, or something else.

systemd has been designed to care for processes, so implementing
similar features in every compositor is a bit odd.
