Well, it's a step in the right direction to make sure focus is visible,
somehow, in all cases. So that much is really good...
But the "cursor only" indication strikes me as a little weak, can we not
draw a dotted or transparent line around the text canvas? And of course
red is only effective if you aren't color blind :-)
Default blinking is questionable. At any rate it shouldn't blink faster
than 2 Hz (could, in theory, trigger seizures in some people - US
Federal Gov't requirement nowadays).
