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.
