Because this is where those interested in Cygwin-X will be "hanging out"
and looking for answers.  For issues that are clearly X-related (or suspected
to be so), it makes sense to query the list that supports that functionality,
even if the readership is smaller than the main list.  From the perspective
of those with a problem, I would think there would be a preference for
quality (of responses from this list) vs quantity (of eyes on some other
list).  And I'm sure those on the main list who aren't interested in X
issues much prefer the lack of X traffic (and vice-versa).  If you look in
the email archives for discussions about merging the lists, you'll see these
two points were well represented in the feedback, if my memory serves.
