You were damn close actually.  A good friend of mine expanded on your
thoughts and we came up with 

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Matrox"
        Option          "HWCursor" "off"
        Option          "SWCursor" "on"
        Driver          "mga"
        VideoRam        32768

Which, works like a charm
