Well, there actually is a preference indeed to enable the big cursor,
and it is of course enabled on the XO for its 200 dpi screen (the
regular 16 pixels-tall cursor is *tiny*). We already made the cursor
quite a bit smaller and pointier than Eben's Sugar default cursor. But
maybe it's still too large ...
Takashi, what do you think?

Well, the touchpad seems to be the single biggest annoyance of the
current hardware. I noticed that the Waveplace pilots in the Carribean
actually provided USB mice to children. Any idea when the new touchpad
goes into production?
