Nope, it doesn't yet.  But adding it to XWin.exe should be a snap.
I think I still have CVS access, if I can get the src compiling this
weekend I'll do a commit unless AGO objects...Xwin hit such a high
quality level this year I've not needed to do anything with my
install for ages!

Personally, I'd like to see it as an XLib -geometry format
(xwin -geometry 800x600+1024+0) just for consistency...
