Yup, try (ccl::use-gc-cursor-p nil). Pretty cool, huh?
There's also (ccl::using-gc-cursor-p), which returns T or NIL.
Hmm, it looks like it returns exactly the inverse of what it should
return - looks like a bug to me.
Ps. you can use ResEdit to edit the CURS resource to change the
GC cursor's shape arbitrarily, if you're artistically inclined.
