Aha! Yep, this is what I was looking for. This can form the bedrock of all
the operations. I love core stuff. But the only object will be probably be
the the stack. My intentions are to keep the cursor offscreen, because the
users do not have the ability to coordinate motion input devices, so the
'hilited' screen objects take its place.
