Bug#458322: gnome-terminal: Please follow the GTK+/GNOME blinking cursor preference

Package: gnome-terminal
Version: 2.18.3-1
Severity: wishlist

GTK+ and GNOME have a gconf preference for whether cursors should
blink: /desktop/gnome/interface/cursor_blink .  However,
gnome-terminal has its own separate preference for whether its cursor
should blink.  Please consider just following the GTK+/GNOME
preference and removing the independent preference.
