two installer questions




1. setting up new cygwin X server, got stuff installed
by selecting xinit in installer and letting it pull things
in. (oddly, selecting xterm instead does not pull in
everything as I expected.)

But why is adwaita-icon-theme a necessary dependency for xinit?
I'm not installing gnome...

2. I previously deliberately installed the older Tcl/Tk 8.5.18
instead of 8.6. rerunning the installer to add in more X stuff
automagically updated to 8.6 again. Shouldn't a specific
version chosen in a previous install be sticky somehow,
or ask if an update is desired? The ability to freeze selected
packages while everything else updates, and know about it,
seems useful to me.
