Just how rxvt manages to use both X11 and Win32GUI is unique, as has
been discussed before at length. Don't expect anything else X11 based
to do that on Cygwin.
perl-Tk is X11-based because it *does not compile* on Cygwin for Win32.

How does this prove that it's possible?

If that's what you want, then it's already possible with ActivePerl,
which IIRC includes Tk OOTB.
