Well, they certainly will need/want AN X-Server. But I thought Corrina's point was that in some cases that X-Server does not have to be the Cygwin xorg-server (could be a different local X-Server, or even a remote X-Server).

True enough, though I expect for most Cygwin users, this is the exception and not the rule.

My question is:  are there enough gitk users who would need/want the
Cygwin xorg-server that it would be worth installing xorg-server by
default when installing gitk, even though some gitk users may not
actually need the Cygwin xorg-server?

I would be for adding Cygiwn's xorg-server as a dependency for any package that needs an X-Server to be generally useful.
