Hiding the X cursor?

XFixes was the way to go.  I was worried that the package wasn't on  
the system and I didn't feel like putting it there.  Luckily it was  
included and all I had to do was patch matchbox.  Attached is the diff  
file if anyone wants to patch theirs.

I patched matchbox-remote to accept another option and the wm to  
detect the event that is sent to X.  To change the cursor visibility  
on the fly:

Hide the cursor:  matchbox-remote -h
Show the cursor:  matchbox-remote -s
