Maybe a little off-topic here, but I back this proposal of totally
disabling cursor at X level. We also use Barry's patch:

We build a kiosk like interface upon distribution precompiled packages,
and we don't want to disable cursor in all applications we use (or will use)

This patch also allow us to have a debug mode with the very _same_ xorg

Don't know fo sure if this patch do it the right way, but it is simple,
and do what we need. I hope it could go upstream sooner or later.
