Ah, nice - thanks for the pointer.

I guess what I want to do is to have cursor-type set to (bar . 6) at the
end of the line and t otherwise. Perhaps something like:

  (defun asjo-indicate-end-of-line ()
    "Change the cursor to a narrow one when at the end of line"
    (if (eq (point) (line-end-position))
        (setq cursor-type '(bar . 6))
      (setq cursor-type t)))

I would need a hook called every time point is moved (or any time it is
moved to/from end of line) or add an advice to something, I guess?

I have looked though the list found with M-x apropos hook, but couldn't
really a good candidate...

  Best regards,
