Are you asking the right question?

At present - and for our purposes there not only is no time like the present but no time other than the present - the only party capable of forming this pro-independence government is the Scottish National Party (SNP). That is a fact so far beyond doubt as to render questioning pointless. Even if there was a different or better answer further along the chain there is no time to get to that answer never mind implement the new solution. It's the SNP or nothing. So, regardless of any other consideration, shouldn't that be where all our efforts and resources are directed?
