In the case of rxvt, it is a little behind the times.  The new trend is Unicode
which rxvt doesn't provide.  But compared to the newer rxvt-unicode and even 
rxvt is still a lot smaller in size and that's why I prefer to use it, 
when I sometimes have over ten X terminals open simultaneously.

Regarding mc, what I'd like to have is a way to implement a richer set of
colors.  Currently, mc only can display 16 colors, while most X terminals
can be compiled to handle 256.  A larger color set would permit more attractive
