drop non functional gtk cursor theme

Since we're using Xserver's builtin cursor font, the whole code reacting Gtk cursors theme signals isn't doing anything useful at all - it just recreates the cursors from the same source they originally came from and readjust them for all clients, practically doesn't change anything.

IOW: we haven't any cursor theming in xfwm at all, just many Loc that don't do anything useful.

If we'll actually implement that feature, it should be quite different in several places:

  1. directly use XSETTINGS spec instead of proprietary Gtkisms
  2. carefully consider extending the spec to to also store the actual cursors (instead of just the theme name - since remote client don't necessarily have the same themes)
  3. do it in ScreenInfo instead of DisplayInfo - since xsettings operates on root window, thus on Xscreen instead of Xdisplay.
