I think that was partly the reason. Snape was not in good shape when Lily died. I think Dumbledore recognized the danger of Severus doing harm to himself and so suggested a way for him to channel his grief into something positive, and not self-destructive.

And, of course, having someone out there who will keep an eye on Harry is an added bonus.

I am incapable of hating someone who, instead of using a spell to guard the Sorcerer's Stone, uses a logic puzzle.
I'm sorry.
