Would it be possible to implement a command then that says exec this with tty's instead of ptys?

Cygwin ttys and ptys are the same thing.

OK how about a command that says start this Windows console mode application using whatever it is that will make it happy enough to talk to stdin/stdout/stderr (short of starting a new window that is).

You should be able to start a command in a new console window with "cygstart" (q.v.).

Yes I can, however this starts it in another "Windows window" that does not easily resize, has crappy copy/paste semantics, colors and fonts. IOW all the reasons why I'm running rxvt! What I want is for it to run in the rxvt window so that I can have the nicer copy/paste, etc, not start a new window.
