"support" is relative. There's apparently no X maintainer, so no updated
packages. On the other hand, while I respond to xterm issues(*) on this
and other lists, I don't recall _ever_ seeing support from rxvt's
maintainers on this list.
(*) aside from obvious ones - setting the font is an example that's best
done via the manpage.
