RFC: Disabling blinking cursor by default

The blinking cursor causes the processor and GPU to be woken up 
frequently. On one of my test systems, this causes somewhere in the 
region of 2 Watts of extra power consumption. I'd like to change the 
default for this to false. Anyone have any objections?
