I don't like that option.
XFree 4.3.0 has been released last February. My memory could be playing
tricks on me, but I thought someone already mentioned it on this list
some months ago (can't seem to find it though).

If we rush things and include this at the last minute, we might have
some minor issues. If we make this wait until 2.6, it will me more than
a year (!) in which GNOME does not have support for X 4.3 cursors.
That's not really what we'd want, is it?

And it's actually a solution to a regression-bug...if you look at it the
right way. :)

The best solution IMHO would be to first test the new code, and be
prepared to rip it out again if it proves to be unsatisfactory (like the
new weather-applet). I think the users will be very happy if they knew
we'd at least tried.

Just my 2 cents,
