Re: Block cursor in a tty

        Does anybody know why Emacs insists on using the
        big-block-cursor rather than using whatever the user has
        selected as default?

    vs was defined specifically to be used by full-screen editors to
    make the cursor more visible.

    The default cursor is for sequential input.  With sequential input,
    you know which line to look in, so it is easier to see the cursor;
    thus, it does not need extra visibility.

Can we at least make it a customizable option?  I didn't look very much
into this, but it sure felt annoying when I first set the default cursor
of my consoles to non-block mode and found out that Emacs appeared to
'reset' the cursor to block mode.
