"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.
