Unfortunately I have a very demanding day job, which allows me to work only during the weekends :-(. The code is not yet in a state where I can *display* to others. Once I clean it up, I will send the patches. Please note that having a working software doesn't mean that it is still releasable.

At no point in time I mentioned about splitting cygwin-xfree. I realize the fantastic work done by you, mike and fortin till now and sorry if you felt like that. However, I am not sure the methodology cygwin-xfree is using is the right approach (basing on xfree86, using GGI layer over and above directx and not concentrating on GDI based X-Server). That does not prevent me from contributing to the project.

Please give me some time. How can I learn about cygwin/mingw if I take your help for porting without atleast giving it a try myself ;-)
