Actually you can do at least some unix-like cut and paste
if you have the right kind of mouse.  I discover that I can
click the mouse-wheel and it behaves like a middle-button-click.
And if you are pasting into a Windows application, you can
mouse-highlight in the rxvt window and then use the normal
Windows paste operation in the other window.
