Aah, somewhat difficult: I collected them mostly between 2005 and 2007, a 2nd 
batch around 2010, plus I did some manual repairs ...
I will gladly provide them, but in total they encompass 213 MB uncompressed. 
Either we need some exchange place for the whole chunk or you select specific 
cursor sets ...

* tagging or categorisation facilities,
* powerful search filters, 
* actually meaningful previews and descriptions (just eye-candy, but no useful 
indication of ergonomy, design goals and principles, intended use cases (large 
screen, small screen, mouse or touch driven interface, casual vs. extended 
use, ...)
* rating differentiation (e.g. independent rating dimensions "aesthetic", 
they degraded to large junkyards, were you have to dig for hours, just to find 
the rare gems.
