Well yeah, you can run an X server on Windows, that's one of the things I
mentioned as a useful alternative to porting Gtk. They're wanting to port
Gtk, not X, so it isn't necessary to run the X server. This means
replacing Xlib with something that speaks Windows instead of the X
protocol. (maybe the xlib.dll you mention already does this; if so, a Gtk
port might be relatively easy.)
