systemd for per screen session

Hi all,

I have a setup with two separate X screens, one on the TV for xbmc, the other for "quick net" with a full kde session.
At the moment at startup the kde session auto-logs in, and using a script xbmc starts on the second screen. What I would like is xbmc to start directly at startup without having to go through the kde session and, since xbmc crashes from time to time, I'd like to use systemd for its process monitoring feature (other suggestions welcome).

To achieve this, I'd also need to force kde to completely ignore the second screen, it already works quite well, but ksplash and the desktop shell interact with it. Any ideas? Although this part isn't critical, it'd be nice for a complete setup.

To sum up : at startup I'd like to have xbmc running on one screen, with kdm at the ready on the second; xbmc being monitored for crashes and restarted if needed. Any ideas?
