Mr Ken Ray, our Son of Thunder, has rounded off the thread beautifully.
Thanks Ken!
Hopefully, in the next RR release, we will be able to say "set the cursor to

if the environment is "development" then
  set the cursor to hand
  switch (the platform)
    case "Win32"
      set the cursor to hand  -- id 28
    case "MacOS"
      set the cursor to 8
    case "Linux
      set the cursor to 10
  end switch
end if
