would it be possible to have a "dynamic" cursor with a shape that
reflects the state of the tool? e.g. a line (or ellipse) of width and
angle equal to those used by the calligraphy tool. I don't know if it
is possible and if it will not be too resources hungry when used with
a tablet (when angle and width change a lot) but it would be
interesting to have IMHO.
NB: and it might be replaced by the cross also, when width is too
small and the cursor becomes inconspicuous.
