changing console cursor



i'm looking for a way i can get rid of the blinking underline cursor
on console screen.  i'm wishing to have something like a red
non-blinking block, something that can be achieved with:

	echo -e '\033[?17;7;64c'
	
as adviced in
/usr/doc/kernel-doc-2.2.19/Documentation/VGA-softcursor.txt.gz.

the problem is that programs like mutt and vim are happy to reset the
cursor back to the usual blinking one.  can the cursor somehow be
permanently set to some other shape?  or rather, is it easy?  i don't
know should i start playing with kernel sources, or
/usr/share/terminfo/* or console-tools or something else.  does
anyone have any idea?  please don't say X is the solution :)
