Oops.  It seems that I made a packaging error and startxtow is missing from
both x86 and x86_64 packages.

I've uploaded a XtoW-20130802-2 which includes the script.

It'll still need some adjusting on x86_64, as it requires both perl-Win32-GUI
and rxvt-unicode-X which aren't yet packaged, but you could work around that
by hard-coding your display dimensions and using a different X terminal...
