Cool, so I probably need:

       XKBLAYOUT = gb

also, which of the above is the correct lts.conf location?  

I know you're preparing a default lts.conf which is a good idea.  It would
be really helpful to have a doc or wiki page somewhere which listed _every_
directive which can be set in lts.conf and if possible every possible value

programs when they login again (as gnome currently advertises).
