That seems to function by running the X server directly rather than running xinit. Anyone know what I'll miss out on by skipping xinit? (Other than the problem I have with needing to force the xinit process to stick around?) I will seem to lose the ability to run custom stuff in my .xinitrc file, but I think I'd be customizing startxwin.bat/.sh anyway so that wouldn't be an issue I suppose.

You get the same thing with startx.
