something through gsettings?

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ? or via XDG autostart?

I would be hesitant to put too much of hack back in place, when the
initial-setup is almost there already. Scripts in /etc/X11/xinit are
basically outside the session, and not a good solution; you'll have to
struggle with not making them run in other desktops, etc etc. Any
solution that involves writing settings at login is going to increase
our already slow login time by forcing dconf to be launched.
If we absolutely need to have a solution that derives a default input
source from the display language (which you still have to set up
initially, anyway), I would suggest to do it inside the settings-daemon
plugin, and only if we detect a 'pristine' system, ie no input sources
configured at all.
Rui, Allan, what do you think ?
