That's true and can be said of most art but I think actual use of a
modern cursor theme will be enough to convince most people that
improvements have been made.  Hands are shaped nicer, pointers are
better aliased, shadows more realistic, sizes are more appropriate...

The link below depicts XP cursors to the left, while the equivalent
Polar, Neutral and Ubuntu cursors are on the right, in that order.
