Fair enough. I see a couple of options here:

 1) more DDX entry points to handle animated cursors. Your DDX would
    do nothing at all, others could move the animation into the kernel
    or even hardware.
 2) Full build-time 'no cursors' option which completely disables all
    cursor images.
 3) Specific build-time 'no animated cursors' option, this seems 
    sub-optimal as it leaves lots of cursor code still running.

We've been moving away from 2) as a maintenance headache, I'm starting
to wonder what level of build-time configurability we should have
