[horde] Define standard portal layout for all user

Using CVS HEAD, what I did was to configure the portal to my taste with
a test user, grab the portal_layout preference from my mysql prefs
backend :

 select * from horde_prefs where pref_uid = 'testuser' and pref_name =

and pasted the output in horde/config/prefs.conf :

$_prefs['portal_layout'] = array(
    'value' => <paste your stuff here>
    'locked' => true,
    'shared' => false,
    'type' => 'implicit',
    'desc' => 'Layout of portal page'

The "'locked' => true,' part make the portal layout uneditable by the
user.  CVS HEAD hide the portal editing link if the portal_layout pref
is locked.

BTW, is the encoded object format as found in this pref documented
somewhere ?  I may have to parse it outside of Horde to do automatic
pref tweaking for my user and need to understand.  In last resort, I
will read the code, but if a document exist on the subject I would start
