That's complicated, one does not simply change the cursor in a browser :)

The more I think about it the more I agree with you. People will understand the zooming and less is sometimes more.

Where would you put it and how would it look like? Be more specific so that I can give you some credit.

comment Why do most public toilet doors open inwards?
From your answer it seems to me that the bacteria contamination on the door handle (especially E-coli) is of greater danger for the user than the possibility of being hit by the door opening to any side (especially if the door is transparent and doe's not lead to large public area directly) or the possibility of being struck inside the restroom where the door is blocked from outside. my conclusion is that the answer to my question is that the pull-handle-to-leave-the-restroom design is pure madness.
