I would like to use a bar cursor, instead of a block cursor.
(setq default-frame-alist '((cursor-type . (bar . 2))))

The problem is, that the bar cursor is drawn like a block cursor, only using a smaller width. To really be usable, the bar cursor should be drawn *between* the characters, e.g. shifting it width/2 pixels to the left.

On the attached Emacs.png the 'u' is partially hiden by the bar-cursor. It is even worse when the cursor is placed at the 'i', in which case the letter is hidden completely. The attachment SciTE.png shows a screenshot of the OpenSource Scintilla text editing widget, which shifts a 2 pixel wide bar-cursor one pixel to the left.

Kind regards,
