command: add cursor-autohide property
Allows properly changing/updating the cursor state. Useful for client API window embedding, because the host application may not want the mpv window to grab mouse input, and this has to manually handle the cursor. Changing the cursor of foreign windows is usually not sane. It might make sense to allow changing the cursor icon, but that would be much more complicated, so I won't add it unless someone actually requests it.
