I also vote for this configurability. I want to use 'left_ptr' and 
'right_ptr' instead of the current pointers (they look very ugly to
me, the angle of the arrows is not very good).

So far I haven't seen a better pointer anywhere than left_ptr (it is
the correct shape and color). The default OS/2 and Motif pointer is the
same. I even use the same pointer under windows as a replacement for
default white one. (I also use a spinning disk drive pointer for a
busy cursor, but that's another story ;-)
