While I can't control whether Yaakov adds xinit as a dependency to
tcl-tk, I personally wouldn't mind adding xinit as a prereq to gitk and
git-gui, since I maintain that package.  There's still that annoyance
factor that just depending on xinit won't get X running, but at least it
will let you download all the bits in one run of setup.exe instead of
hitting the FAQ and finding out you have to rerun setup.exe.
