This is what I've been doing ;)
But it gets annoying having to rebuild the rxvt source - especially
when for some reason it doesnt build OOT(cygwin-patched)B - or patch
the binary myself whenever there's a new release, especially when its a
patch that most users would enjoy (although it may bloat the binary by
an extra 1k - so use upx :P).
Just a convenience thing really ;)
