That does help a lot.

I strongly disagree with your first sentence though.

1) If you have an app that's redrawing a lot you often really need to be
able to review without being bothered by the cursor moving and without
having to fight with the redraw.
Consider for example an app that updates a clock every second...

2) Actually, I run into cases fairly frequently where I don't want to
force cursor motion but I want to get back to where the cursor is.
