FWIW, I could not find any applications other than Emacs 20.7 on my
Solaris box that do not have blinking cursors by default. Even vim has
a blinking cursor. I find it assists finding the cursor when your
attention has been distracted. The rate at which Emacs blinks the
cursor is not especially annoying - dtterm is much worse.

If there are any global .Xdefault settings that affect cursor
blinking, I think we should honor those, otherwise the behaviour of
other applications would suggest that blinking cursors are the norm
these days.
