Building "real" Windows Aps

Just off the top of my head, and way outside my own capacity to implement; 
but, would it be feasible to create some sort of "wrapper" program that 
would provide the WinMain and like entry points to a cygwin ap such as 
RXVT?  Maybe it would need to be a spec to GCC, but I would think just a 
generic WinMain object that would call __main (or whatever the external 
name of the ap's entry) and be linked into the executable to make it a 
Windows ap.
