This is something we've intended to do at an engineering level for a while
but it's logistically harder than it looks (you know what companies are like).
Having a pre-existing wiki where people already expect to find that
information makes it very easy to get it out there. :-)

No, we don't, but anyone with Workstation can generate samples easily enough.

but I'd mention:
a) Changing the guest resolution during recording.
- Bonus points for doing a VT switch from X to a text mode console.
b) Running a guest app that wants to hide the cursor.
c) Using alpha and solid colour cursors.
