AFAIR (Alexandre can correct me if I am wrong), this was something we had a
long time ago (ie one thread that did all the input for all threads and then
re-directed the events to the correct one). And as part of all the memory
separation / threading rework, this has been suppressed by the concept of
each thread having its own event loop + X connection.
In the X way of things, this could be something done at the WM level (ie say
to the WM the we want to have the cursor confined to this window).
