But there is :) I use cygwin in 'terminal mode', and sometimes my video
driver crashes windows when I switch between console mode and the desktop
too often. Also, I'd like to be able to have more than one shell without
having to use the 'start' menu on windows to launch a different window (and
I couldn't get 'screen' to work properly either :(

There isn't, but there wouldn't be much point. Cygwin console windows are
Windows windows (usually either cmd.exe or rxvt.exe) so you can switch
between them using Alt-TAB.
So, would it be possible to port the existing one, or should I just write
my own terminal swintching thing?
