Well, if it helps, Kevin Miller indicated the very reason for the 
change was to give Rev apps a more mainstream look. The mickey hand was 
one of the few things in Rev that triggered the "this isn't programmed 
in something real" reaction.

One thought I entertained was the possibility of actually having the 
select tool have the mini 4-way arrow attached to the select arrow (as 
it does in the tool palette), particularly when in the IDE... which 
would give a visible cursor difference between the browse and select 
tools - which I don't argue as not being useful. I can see where it can 
be confusing (for some at least) that two very different modes have the 
same cursor.
