There were some written some months ago. But since they were either in Delphi
or MFC (== not compileable with freely available tools) we did not included
them to the Cygwin/X distribution. Search the mailing list for details.

It is still an open task to build one which 
- does not depend on commercial compilers (gcc compilable is preferred)
- works standalone (it should only require few libraries)

Any volunteers?
