This is from Mantis 7224 "Add big cursor support to the VM", which was added
for OLPC support (as of VMMaker-dtl.108, so not related to Eliot's closure
support updates). From the Mantis report:

  The required platform support code is already in place for unix and Mac OS.
  Implementations of ioSetCursorARGB() will be required for win32 and RiscOS
  (in win32/vm/sqWin32Window.c and RiscOS/vm/sqRPCWindows.c respectively).

Andreas, is this something that you can add to the Windows platform support?
