Note that tcl and itcl do not, themselves, do any display-oriented
processing. So GDI vs. X is meaningless for them. They could be
released in a separate, "cygwin" tcl package.
It's only because we package tcl + tk + itcl + itk all together in one
install that we worry about "X" tcl and "X" itcl.
AFAICT, expect is the same way; it depends only on tcl, not tk (and
thus, not X or GDI).
The real bone of contention is "tk" and "itk" alone. How can we have a
cygwin-X tk and a cygwin-GDI tk on the same machine.
