Comment (by cnielsen):

 Yes as far as I know that's all correct.

 I have found a way to modify {{{msys.bat}}} to automatically start grass
 (using the {{{grass64}}} file, and therefore {{{init.sh}}}) and have the
 terminal left available. I think having a terminal is fairly fundamental
 to grass's functionality, so maybe this approach would be better than
 having a whole other windows startup system (unless there are more
 fundamental reasons to having the {{{grass.bat/init.bat}}}).

 Basically I just changed line 95 of {{{msys.bat}}} ({{{start
 %WD%rxvt}}}...) to execute {{{grass64}}}.
