For people who are visually impared, the vertical line that forms the text 
mode cursor is difficult to find on a screen full of text. It would be good if 
an alternative cursor were available for visibility. For example an open box 
would be easier to find than the vertical line. Better yet a colored block 
cursor would be more visible. In the extreem case, the choice to make it blink 
would make it even more visoble. (Remember the blinking cursor from the VT50 

Note that this is different from the mouse cursor which can often be changed 
at the OS level.
