Mouse pointer indicating resize direction

There has been some discussion how to indicate the resize direction of windows when holding CTRL+ALT (the resizing is done with the right mouse button), see this thread. At the moment, the respective window borders are highlighted.
Instead of border-highlighting, one idea is to change the cursor and have it indicate the current resize direction. I have created the necessary pointers in Icon-O-Matic. Following Stippis advice, I imported them into WonderBrush, added a little drop shadow and saved the cropped images as PNG. It's all attached.
These are the pointers (I-O-M files without the drop shadow, PNGs don't get a thumbnail...):
The hotspot should be on the upper left corner of the little window. That way the little window should be steady while the arrows dis/appear when moving the mouse, indicating the current resize direction.
Once the right mouse button gets pressed, the pointer changes to the actual resize-cursor, which are already implemented. Likewise, left-clicking will change into move-mode.
