Yes, but I have to admit... I knew there was a cursor change in 2.5, 
but had been too tied up in a 2.2.1 project to really pay attention. 
Since I launched 2.5 to look at the issue specifically, I have to say, 
I think RunRev did a great job of modernizing it. The two cursors are 
logical, appropriate, and have the "power app" look that Rev should 
have - IMHO.

For me, they hit the mark. Incidentally, I *do* like mickey hand for 
hyperlinks, that too is a sensible convention that is immediately 
recognized.
