This adds complexity to the core and display plugins. And then it adds latency 
to show the cursor again, as you need a roundtrip to the video output thread - 
which may well be doing something else such as running some a computationally 
expensive video filter, or waiting between prepare and display callbacks.

Besides, the agreement from last year was to remove this entirely, at least 
from display plugins.
