Isn't it possible to have the pointer invisible in one frame, then
switch to another where the pointer is visible, even if there's only
one pointer?

Anyway, as all mouse-specific variables are maintained per frame, I
don't think we should hold this one on a per-terminal basis.

 This predicate function returns address@hidden if the mouse pointer
 displayed on @var{frame} is visible; otherwise it returns
 @code{nil}.  @var{frame} omitted or @code{nil} means the selected
 frame.  This is useful when ...

It is a good idea to have here a cross-reference to where
make-pointer-invisible is described (in the Emacs User Manual).

Your entry should be at the top of the file.
