How to change mouse cursor to standard hand cursor

I need to change the mouse pointer for a window to the standard hand
cursor (I need a toolkit-independent solution, preferably XCB-based).

I noticed that loading the "cursor" font and changing the window
attribute XCB_CW_CURSOR to XC_hand2 loads an ugly and unfamiliar hand
cursor, not the default Ubuntu hand cursor that you see in Chrome when
you hover links.

Any ideas?
