My question is: are there enough gitk users who would need/want the

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.
Probably xorg-server could be made a conditional dependency (not sure if
cygwin supports these), e.g. triggered by a registry value or env setting,
and it could be enabled by default, while some users could configure it to
tell the installer that they use some external X-Server?
"setup.exe" doesn't support conditional dependencies but for those that
would prefer to install/use another X-Server, I'm sure they can figure
out how to tell "setup.exe" not to install Cygwin's X-Server. I'm sure
the facility you're talking about could be added to "setup.exe" if someone
were interested in providing patches to enable this though.
