See the real issue here is how we can configure rxvt to provide the above.

Shift-pageup/shift-pagedown are so incredibly embedded into a typical
X/rxvt/xterm users' head at this point that it's pretty much a motor
function. I think that you will find most people using X for the majority
of their work are not sticking to the home keys and proper keyboard position
as a strict order - but only when they need to. It also helps to develop
that 'edge of thumb on top-left of shift + ring finger on page up/down'
action. :) That being said, you *can* change them, but I believe it
requires hacking at your .Xresources file or equivalent.
