Not so fast, Thomas.  I did not and do not agree with your previous 
posts: neither of your messages claimed that "upstream rxvt has no 
maintainer".  (If they did, then I would have agreed with that.)   Your 
messages claimed that rxvt had no cygwin maintainer.  That claim is 
false: I am the cygwin maintainer for rxvt.

Don't try to retcon this thread.

No, cygwin does not. Cygwin's rxvt-unicode port has limited unicode 
support because Thomas Wolff provided me with a patch (to rxvt-unicode) 
that shims unicode support by intercepting certain X calls.
