Thanks. I think it's the sort of thing that could have done with being covered in a [section of a] blog post.

Not yet. I wanted to install an Arch VM to have a look at how everything interleaves on there (X server/xinit/xprofile/Xsession/lightdm/... because this isn't something I know a great deal about) but I had a bit of a problem T8871.
