This accessibility handicap (chicken <-> egg) begs another question: why 
should anyone need to change it? Why doesn't the mouse pointer size adjust 
automatically as screen pixel density is increased like text does? The system 
that raised this question is 180 DPI, where the default pointer is all but 
invisible to the eyes that routinely use it.
