With the high-visibility boot option on the Live CD we should include a 
large cursor theme (as well as the high contrast theme).

So I've tried the 'big-cursor' package, which doesn't seem to do 
anything (no new cursors appear in Mouse Preferences -> Pointers (it 
installs a cursor font -- is this an outdated method that doesn't change 
the cursors in gnome?)

'xcursor-themes' results in very many choices (too many really) of red 
and white cursors. Trouble is that these are quite transparent, which 
while it is a cool effect, is probably not ideal for those who need high 

Looks like these might be more suitable:

Can we package these for dapper?
