replied too quick.

The hotspots definitely need to be per cursor (ie; knife draws from tip, 
not center, cross selects vert at center not corner).  The colors could be 
global, or per cursor, Might be used later for color==type of operation 
type communication.  Might be themeable in future.  Could 
define/redefine  EDITCURSOR_FG etc...  And even have special color codes 
that depend on current operation so ARROW_CURSOR could be black on Objmode 
and blue in Editmode... (Or whatever.)  The point is under X11 (the most 
limiting platform colorwise), we can only have 2 color cursors. But they 
can be any two colors and can be changed on the fly.

Since none of this cursor data is ever saved to the .blend, we have tons of 
room to expand and modify once the basic system is in place.
