EINVAL? That would appear to be a nuisance as we don't already tell the
user off for being silly with the cursor position.

Bump the internal range? Future proof against tomorrow's 64k
super-ultra-high definition monitors?

The valid range for cursor is currently (-64, 8192) and we don't compute
relative cursor position, so we will be fine for a few years yet with
