Wow, go figure, it does run in a native window. That is pretty darn
cool. Well, so far so good. I've got the keys mapped the way I want
them. I like the way Cut/Copy/Paste works. I like that selections
are line by line, as opposed to rectangular. Scroll wheel works. So
far no problem with full screen apps such as emacs and less.
Yes very cool. I use it all the time. Here's another tip: Instead of
wildly long invocation lines use ~/.Xdefaults to specify things that are
common and possibly to create term "types" then use rxvt -name... For
example, instead of
$ rxvt -fn "Lucida Console-*-15" -sl 500 -backspacekey ^? -deletekey ^? \

You can just do rxvt for your default rxvt. If you want different colors
(or other things) then you can use rxvt -name hostb or rxvt -name hostc,
etc, given the following ~/.XDefaults file. This allows you to keep all
your terminal "types" or "schemes" neatly defined in one place.
! Rxvt defaults
! Global Settings
*font: "Lucida Console-*-15"
! Default color "scheme" (when no -name is used):
! Color scheme for hostb
! Color scheme for hostc
