What If Wesley Had Come Before Gwen Post?

I encountered this conversation, about what would have happened if Wesley had been Buffy's watcher from the beginning, instead of Giles. I think he would have had to earn her respect - and it would have taken awhile.

But another what-if question occurred to me: What if Wesley had shown up to be Faith's watcher before/instead of Gwen Post? If the events of Revelations hadn't happened, if Faith hadn't been so badly burned, could she have embraced Wesley as her watcher? Would she at least have given him a chance?
