Editing XF86Config will cause the change to apply to every X session run
on your system. Putting a command in .xinitrc will mean that it only
affects you. Which one you use is a matter of personal preference.
.xinitrc is in your home directory - it is the script that run when
you start up X. The default one is IIRC in /etc/X11/Xsession.
