I'm not sure if 'great' here means 'I like the idea of it' or 'I've tested it 
and it works well', but thank you :-)

As it says at the end of that mail, "still needs more testing and work".

There's been a bit more work at [1], but beyond getting the patch itself to 
work correctly, it unfortunately seems that it also exposes some race 
conditions lurking in the -multiwindow code, which need also fixing before 
it's safe to include this patch, and somebody has to do that.

No, the cygwin-patches list is for patches to the cygwin DLL.  This is the 
correct list for discussion of patches to the Cygwin/X server.
