I think all the platforms use the same basic default pointer (maybe a black on 
white vs. white on black change).  I suppose I could define cursor number -1 
as the default.  But if it solves a different problem, why not take 5 mins to 
draw an arrow in my script?

I suppose I caould also make it acceptable to make the pointers to the big 
cursors NULL, and use small ones in that case, so not every cursor needs a 
large counterpart.

UnNamed was working on drawing some Cursors (I have only made a few for 
testing).  I think he was going by that as a guide.
