Why did this enter the code? I guess i'm not the only one annoyed by it...

** rat cursor changes

When you hit the prefix key the rat cursor changes to a square to tell
you what it is waiting for another key.

Does anyone see a good way to use copy'n'paste operations ratless? Anything 
that really is fast to work with and works between applications.

I mostly use gnome-terminals which hide the cursor automatically as soon as you 
type anything. That's a nice feature.

Got damn! You're right! I didn't realize that. Copy-paste works perfect i see. 
As long as there is no need to scroll the windows of course. That requires 
keyboard focus most of the time.
