Let's go back to basic. Why do we have a feature freeze? To ensure
stability. It would be kind'a silly to forget about that, right?
Now we have two big questions (and if ANY subquestion here below would
be answered as 'no', the artwork should go in). The first is rather
about the 'process', the other one is more 'content'.

Big question ONE: Are these cursors subject to the freeze?
=> is artwork as a whole was subject to the freeze? If yes, then:
=> are these cursors something entirely different then the cursors, on
which work is still going on?If yes, then:

Big question TWO: Do cursors threathen the stability of KDE 4.0 if included?
=> could they, technically, break stuff for the user? If yes, then:
=> is it impossible or every hard to test them to ensure this won't happen?

If any question can be answered with NO, the cursors should go in as
default. If all answers are yes, they could imho still go in but not
as default.
