Right. But XDRIVER also comes with an improved mouse cursor. If I recall
correctly, it's the same file.

A few display modules may still need that update, I didn't
check them all.

Sure, but that's not needed (at time). At least a minimization of

But this requires that (some) 5.3 developers look at these selected
5.7 changes and merge them back. Then I'll clean 5.7 accordingly (or
they do it).
