Nothing wrong with choosing not to break into subfunctions, but there
some differences in the basic logic that make it hard to maintain.

Consider the xterm behavior.  For FILLED_BOX_CURSOR, we call
draw_phys_cursor_glyph to redraw that glyph with the cursor face
(DRAW_CURSOR).  No additional repainting is necessary.  For bar cursors,
we paint an extra thin bar on top of the screen area for the existing
glyph; there is no need to call draw_phys_cursor_glyph.

In contrast, ns_draw_window_cursor repaints via NSRectFill (for both box
and bar cursors), and then calls draw_phys_cursor_glyph (for both box
and bar cursors).  The NS terminal seems not to use DRAW_CURSOR for
drawing filled box cursors.  So the basic handling for box cursors seems
to be completely different, and I don't understand the rationale.
