Hi Igor,

allows to use cur/ani files for custom cursor:

Thanks for your response. You are correct, under Windows the
cursor='@path/to/file.ext' technique works as expected. I had
tried that, but from within IDLE (Python 2.7) this syntax raises
an exception. Using this technique in scripts running from the
command line (outside of IDLE) works well.
