We have the trailing-whitespace face to show that instead.  It has the 
advantage of showing junk whitespace regardless of the cursor position.  
In fact, it shows it _only_ if the cursor is not at the end of the 
trailing whitespace.

But I agree with Stefan: that special cursor shape might be useful for 
other purposes (although I suspect that the change in the redisplay code 
he suggests is not a trivial one).
