    So those who actually liked the hollow box will need to customize
    blink-cursor-alist.  But currently that's not something you can
    customize with Customize -- should it be?

I think it should be possible to customize this aspect of Emacs
behavior with Custom, but customizing an alist is an inconvenient
interface for beginners.  Perhaps there could be a special custom type
that provides a simple way to customize what blinking looks in the
current setup, without showing the complexity of the alist.  That
would be simple to use.

The same approach could be useful for other alists that beginners
might want to customize.  So perhaps this new custom type could
be a general feature for an alternative way to specify how to
customize an alist.

Per, interested in writing such a custom type?
