Yeah, I think that could be done.

I was also just talking to some people that frequently visit the Cygwin 
web site, but had no idea that the Cygwin/X web site even existed.  It 
seems that it would be useful to add a short blurb on the main Cygwin 
site that says something like "Try Cygwin/X for a full-featured free X 
Server for Windows including clipboard integration, desktop integration, 
and more".  I don't want to add that right away, but do you see a 
problem with my doing so in the near future?
