OK, it looks like I have both of these working on Cygwin now.  I do 
remind everyone that video-nested doesn't have a tarball release yet.

(Don't forget Xfake.)  While I think we do need scripts to replace at 
least Xvfb (which is used in building a few packages), what about 
command-line option compatibility?   How do you handle "Xvfb -screen 0 
640x480x24 :1" or "Xnest -geometry 640x480+100+100 :2" and the like?
