A typical application developer should not have to touch the GDK layer
at all. So what's missing here is gtk_widget_set_cursor().  People
should only ever see GDK if they need to write their own drawing
code. Using widget->window should be OK then. If we added
gtk_widget_get_window(), people would start to ask why this function
doesn't always succeed.
