RE: change cursor type when idle

I must say I'm a bit surprised by all the heat this has generated.


It's fine with me if this isn't added to Emacs, or if you trim part of it
out and add only some of it. I really don't care. It will still be available
on Emacs Wiki, for anyone who really wants it.

For the record, I got the idea from Juri. Perhaps he got it from CUA mode; I
don't know. 

Personally, I find it useful. In particular, being able to use a bar cursor
for editing, but having it switch to a box cursor temporarily after an idle
period, helps me locate the cursor again. Others are welcome to feel

Either way, I think it's a minor feature - hardly worth all the pyrotechnic
entertainment. ;-)
