      For a long time, urxvt's unicode support was multiple orders of
      magnitude better than xterm's (as in: xterm didn't have any). If
      you use more than the 26 Latin chars used in ASCII English in your
      everyday language, proper first-order support is important. Since
      you're an old fart like me: Unicode support was/is the modern
      equivalent of being 8-bit clean.

      Also, urxvt can be compiled to be very, very small, which some
      people prefer for whatever reason.
