Cursor Easy Change module

We, like any active Drupal team, faced with the task of recruiting new staff. To begin with, to cut off unwanted people, the usual step is the test task. Commonly in our practice, we ask the applicant to create a simple module. But Drupal has a lot of contributed modules that cover all needs of the ordinary developer. So if we ask applicants to repeat some existing solution they can look for a contributed solution... Yes, it is a good skill to easy implementation of a contributed solution with some customization. But we would like to see how an applicant will create a solution from scratch. Recently we have to propose the most amazing tasks, which may be completely useless, only just for fun. Below I would like to show the result of such a test task, that was successfully done. Every beginner in the web development area is seeking to add to the site as many different effects as possible to impress site visitor. A little creative effects, which can easily to surprise is a custom cursor on the site. We ask the applicant to create Drupal module that will provide to the admin of the site the set of cursors to apply via CSS. You can find the result here. The solution is really simple. The form of theme settings is altered.
