I think the numlock status should be in the same state you let it
before. I don't think it has to become a configuration option but
something hardware related (like, for example, mixer volume for sound

There is two questions to answer:
* Is it a per user setting?
  I personally don't think so but I have any argument
* What is the good default state?
  the good default starting state seem to be "numlock is set except on

What to do
* on X shutdown, store the numlock state
* on X start, if a numlock state is stored, use it else use the good
default state.
