I just wonder what is the current status of terminals for X in Cygwin. I
currently use xterm, but I've seen people using rxvt and mrxvt. Also, I heard
that rxvt is actually currently supported in Cygwin, something that xterm
apparently isn't.

"support" is relative.  There's apparently no X maintainer, so no updated
packages.  On the other hand, while I respond to xterm issues(*) on this
and other lists, I don't recall _ever_ seeing support from rxvt's
maintainers on this list.

rxvt is not an X package...

rxvt could run in X, but I agree it has a win32-specific chunk of code.

However, the last I read of _that_ was that it was no longer supported.
For example

        http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-announce/2006-05/msg00002.html

google's not showing me a recent maintainer for the code.

If there's no maintainer, it's not supported, no matter what the mailing list is.
