I know.... I shouldn't fill feature requests for 1.1 :)

OSX hides the mouse pointer when typing in a text editor (*Input equivalents in FLTK). This is very useful when using large input widgets, and a small but noticeable improvement in general UI usage.

Changing the mouse cursor of the current widget to FL_CURSOR_NONE when the first keyboard down event is received, and switching it back on motion/leave doesn't sound impossible.

Implementing this is actually trivial since we are already handling move/enter/leave. The new code hides the mouse pointer when the user presses any key and then shows it again on move, push, enter, or leave.

Implemented for both Fl_Input_/Fl_Input and Fl_Text_Display/Editor.
