My Fedora 23 setup has

=== BEGIN /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common=================================
[...]
userxkbmap=$HOME/.Xkbmap
[...]
if [ -r "$userxkbmap" ]; then
    setxkbmap $(cat "$userxkbmap")
    XKB_IN_USE=yes
fi
[...]
=== END /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common===================================

A somewhat surprising and scary idiom! I suppose I could specify:

===BEGIN ~/.Xkbmap======================================================
-keymap /home/marko/.keys
===END ~/.Xkbmap========================================================

Then, I suppose I need to use xkbcomp to create ~/.keys
