What is needed here is the XCursor Extension that came with XFree86 4.3.  I
had played around with this, creating a sawfish cursor with transparency.  I
have the attached file under .icons/default/cursors/boat (hiding the
original ugly boat) and then say xsetroot -cursor_name boat

Annoyingly you have to do this from within .sawfish/rc, because sawfish messes
around with the cursor too.
