That was the harder question I hadn't gotten around to asking yet -
replacing XCreateFontCursor with xcb_open_font(..."cursor");
xcb_create_glyph_cursor(); is easy, but a regression in user experience
from the current 32bit ARGB cursor provided by libX11 + libXcursor.
Glad to hear someone is working on it.

Since libXcursor maps the standard cursor names to full-color cursors
in a cursor theme, a replacement for it could be a logical place to
provide the cursor id definitions.
