I think the "angle" type of cursors could be confused with the "angle"
cursor images that are already in the standard X cursor font.

When it comes to the specific subimages, I would prefer a "hand" instead
of the arrow for "move". It is the commonly used metaphor for moving things
around. A hand image has been attached to this mail.

IMHO, cursor size should be user-defined. Users usually change the size
(or appearance) of their X cursors by replacing the cursor font file with
another one. I think special cursors should be in a special font so that
users would be able to customize the images.
I don't have any problem with GTK installing an extra font.

  I have drawn a better-looking X cursor font than the default.
