xinit was not on the X11R7.4 katamari modules list, but is on my list of
modules needing a release made.   I'm not sure why it was removed - perhaps
because the expectation is most users get X11 started via a display manager
like gdm/kdm now?   Though that wouldn't apply to Cygwin & MacOS X users,
so xinit would seem to be a core part of their window system.
