 Hi Matthieu,
 I don't mind the default in general, but my usability complaint is about
 the interaction with X -configure (which, IIUC, you are considering to
 remove completely).
 Currently the user gets no information what to do at all, and "wrong"
 instructions are logged in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.
 My suggestion would be to print the usage hint to stderr, and to modify
 it to include -retro for now (or another new option to at least show the
 mouse cursor imediately).
