There's always place for improvements, but as a first shot at it I didn't
think it was too bad. :-)

IIRC Jesper Skov made some (massive?) cleanup regarding runs, fl_Layout and
so on, and if that's the case the cursor stuff are probably even less fit
for public consumption than it was at the time. Maybe even misleading. But
besides these points, that code might contain some good ideas.

I'm still on the list and read it from time to time, though the (somedays
massive) amount might get me to miss something. I hope to back to contribute
before 0.7.11, but I wouldn't hold my breath at this time.
