I do and FTR: I don't want the cygwin Xorg server to be a dependency
all programs that might use X because that would pull in a lot of
packages that I have no use for on most systems.
Right, that would be a disadvantage of making "xinit" a dependency.

My questions are:

1.  How many people would need to install "xinit"?  How many people
would not need to install "xinit"?

2.  How much of an inconvenience would installing "xinit" present to
people who don't actually need it?

3.  Is there some way to make both groups happy?  For example, could we
have a "gitk+xinit" package to give people a clue that they might want
both (keeping the existing "gitk" package for people who don't need

Would it be adequate to make the installation procedure direct the user to read
a text file describing anything that is SOMETIMES needed, and where to find
packages to provide it, and where to find similar text files describing any startup
procedures needed?
