I would caution using that link; it's over a year old.

The important thing to note from this video and news, it that this is support in X, which does not mean support in toolkits.

However, since it is enabled by default, it will make more sense for toolkit developers to add the support.

Finally, even when that is done, that doesn't necessarily mean apps will play nice, as people could have developed things in a way that multiple cursors could break things.
