[CCing opendx-dev because developers there may be interested in this new 
package and hopefully they can offer some help in testing.]

I would like to contribute and maintain dx and dxsamples for Cygwin:


Description from opendx.org:

If you need visualization for anything from examining simple data sets 
to analyzing complex, time-dependent data from disparate sources, OpenDX 
has what you need: features and functions that let you easily gain 
meaningful insight into your data.

***Reviewer's Caveat***: The 'dx' command segfaults on startup, when run 
without any parameters, in XGetGCValues (IIRC)  (which runs the 
'startupui' command by default).  However, the other commands do appear 
to work.  For example, 'dx -edit' works; you can load any of the sample 
programs and execute them to view their output.  I am not a user of dx, 
so I can't do much more testing.  The 'startupui' bug is something that 
can be fixed after this is released into the wild.  Be sure to open a 
new login shell before trying to run 'dx' since the scripts in profile.d 
need to be run to add 'dx' to your path.
