I don't understand why you don't leave the default as it was. Sureley
the only situation where it is inconvenient to have to pass options
explicitely, is when starting the server by hand for testing purposes --
and this is precisely the situation where both the weave and the cursor
are useful...

It's funny that you openly admit it's just a matter of taste, and yet
seem set on changing the default for no good reason...

Well, have fun dealing with all the bug reports from users wondering
where the background/cursor has gone.
