I would really much rather someone (you?) that knows cygwin and wants 
Tk became took care of this - if their support is as good as you say 
then given that it "used to work" and Linux/XFree86 and Win32 Native 
both work now it cannot be too far wrong.

Personally I haven't a "need" for Cygwin - I do most of my develoment 
(home and work) on Linux. When I need Win32 I want native apps to avoid 
complicated dependancies (and in work case licence paranoia from management).
I am more than willing to apply patches to make Tk work, but don't 
have expertise to diagnose problems.
