Description

If you use unclutter to hide the mouse pointer and switch between windows the pointer appears on the center of the window and then disappears again.

I tested this and it isn't so easy to archive. Just disabling the pointer movement will not work, my suggestions is adding an option to hide the cursor like with a grab. Hiding will mean I just replace the current cursor with an empty cursor and vice versa. Will also reduce the need of tools like unclutter.

What do you think about this way?

I changed my mind about that, pointer doesn't follow e.g. gravity changes anymore, when click-to-focus is enabled.
