Just how rxvt manages to use both X11 and Win32GUI is unique, as has

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.
