Ok, because the major complaint was that the theme was unfinished I sit down 
yesterday and finished it (I said it was a work of a couple of hours).

The theme now includes all the cursors that Qt can pick up via enum value [¹], 
all the cursors listed in the KDE HIG wiki[²], is compliant with the spec by 
freedesktop[³] and contains also some other "bonus" cursors (like 
colorpicker, pirate or pencil) which are only in a couple of the biggest 
themes ever (DMZ, wonderland). Right now we're the theme is more 
comprehensive than DMZ, which is one of the most used themes, default on 
distros like *buntu or OpenSUSE.

The cursors are all done, some cursors might need some other names, symlinks 
to be created (with very strange names, some probably are even SHA1 of 
something :P), which I'll do later today.

Attached the white set. (Resending because attachment was too big. Download it 
here: )

Now that it's done, can this please be considered? Remember that it's only 
artwork and that it can't harm....
