numlockx should then be properly advertised another way: in the X
section of debian manual, FAQ, or any other official place where people
would find it.
My point is that very _few_ people know that installing numlockx is just
sufficient for having numlock set at bootup, while I guess (maybe that's
only a guess, but neither of us can answer, only polling can) that most
people would prefer numlock set. Or rather: it's quite difficult for
those people that want it do discover that they should just install
numlockx, hence documentation.
