And so forth and so on.  Trying to get into hyperbole, right?  We
don't need a blinking non-selected cursor.  And also the menus need
not accommodate _all_ choices.  In a submenu of its own, choices are
cheap to offer, anyway.  I don't see much sense in having a blinking
non-selected cursor.  A full block would be the same as a selected
xterm, and non-blinking small shapes hard to see.  The hollow block
has the disadvantage of not looking good with some ideographs, but I'd
save worrying about that until somebody complains.
