I was thinking too, a 'nice' future feature may be if Cygwin X would
shut down on request, without prompting, if there are no clients?

I don't mind, and I actually appreciate the prompt if I have X stuff
running and I try to shut down Cygwin X. But if there are no X clients
connected, it seems it would be expedient and useful for Cygwin X to go
away without a prompt.
