This feature is on the wish-list, but not (fully) implemented yet.
Basically, what is needed in Tw is a command line parser
(http://code.google.com/p/texworks/issues/detail?id=113). There has been
some initial work going on with this, but it's not yet in the main code.
One other thing: it seems that vim is trying to open a file "$X". Can
this be configured somehow? What we'd need is something like "texworks
--position=$X $filename".
