Right, that's commonly used for custom cursors. You can do the same 
thing with the standard cursors, but then you can't refer to them by 
their named constants (i.e., "busy").

An easier way to embed standard cursors is to just tick the "Cursors" 
checkbox in the standalone settings dialog before building. Then they 
will work as expected.
