As described in another question, I use my .bash_profile to start Xorg on login. I am using a fresh install of Arch Linux.

The Arch Wiki provides instructions for doing this using systemd instead, but notes that there are a few bugs (such as not being able to start Xorg unprivileged). However, these instructions are roughly 5 years old, and they suggest various fixes were being considered by systemd developers at the time of writing. Therefore, I am curious about the current state of Xorg and systemd.

Is it currently possible to start Xorg in unprivileged mode as a user service with systemd?
