I don't entirely agree that there was no change of heart, although it can be argued it was too little, too late. When Dumbledore commands Snape to be the one to kill him and asks, "How many people have you watched die, Severus?", Snape retorts, "Lately, only those whom I could not save," and I think that's proof Snape's finally caught a clue. Other people besides Lily do matter.

Of course, he never gets a chance to act on this sliver of empathy, so who knows how long it would have lasted. The whole question of what Snape would have done with his life if Voldie hadn't offed him (assuming he wasn't bunged into Azkaban for the next hundred years) is fascinating, because then you'd have a Snape without a purpose, and what the hell would he have done without Lily or Dumbledore to guide him?

Snape without a purpose would have found some other reason to go Death Seeker. The main difference between Severus and Sirius was which Potter they were fixated on.
