How do I set the default cursor from .gtkrc?

I've been trying to solve this problem for a while, but Google is of no
help and I don't seem to be able to find any piece of documentation
about the .gtkrc file.

My root window has its default 'X' cursor, which (I think) is good.
Various applications have different cursors: xterm has the 'I' one, the
window manager has the '->|' resize handles, browsers have a left arrow,
'I' beam, or hand depending on context... which is all good.

The problem I have is with GTK apps: they seem to inherit the root 'X'
cursor for most of their widgets, which makes using them a bit kludgy.

Is there a way to set a different default cursor in .gtkrc (such as the
left arrow) while sill keeping the 'X' cursor on the root window?

Is this a bad idea for any reason?
