When control is held down and a context menu would pop up if the mouse was
clicked, we should change the cursor to the OS context-menu cursor.

request for enancement, fairly minor but platform integration.
marking future and helpwanted so some enterprising netizen can come along and
make us suck less.

notes talking to saari:
- extend ESM to be able to give mouse position, button down, etc (while we're at it)
- get the frame for the current mouse point on a control-key-down event
- get its content node
- walk the parent chain looking for popup listeners of type "context"
- if we find one (somehow) change the cursor.

Resolving WONTIFX as OS X doesn’t change the cursor any more.

Not true! Only some apps do it, which has almost always been the case. As an example, try iTunes.

Hm, true. However, isn’t iTunes a Carbon app? Perhaps this is one of those old Carbon/Cocoa issues. The Finder, I think, is Cocoa, and doesn’t do it.
The Finder is Carbon. This is just an app-specific thing.
