xlaunch is a simple Windows GUI tool for starting XWin.

At this stage, this package will only be of interest to people who are willing
to test it and report problems and bugs, and ideally write patches to fix
those issues.

It needs more work to be truly useful. Some of the more obvious issues:

* xlaunch does not report it's version number anywhere
* The htmlhelp is not complete. In particular, some GUI options are not documented
* It needs to play nicely with Xming and VcXsrv versions of itself: (i) it
should not fight over who owns .xlaunch files, (ii) it should ignore
attributes in the .xlaunch XML it doesn't understand
* It should base the list of local Xsessions it displays on what is actually
installed, rather than a fixed list
* It should support the -displayfd option to dynamically allocate display numbers
* The ability to add extra options to the ssh command line (e.g. -C) might be
* The window title should mention xlaunch, otherwise it could be hard to
identify the xlaunch window on the taskbar or when alt-tabbing
* It should maintain history lists of remote hosts and commands run in a dot file.
* When it is useful to do so, the Cygwin/X User Guide documentation needs to
be updated to mention xlaunch
