New on me. I'll start using mintty asap. Must be better than
Terminator. I did a cutesy thing with an echo-ed ellipse to mark time
while a script iterated over some lines in a list: rxvt wrapped each
unbroken string to 80 characters while Terminator ran them off the
right-hand side of the window before doing so. You set it as many times
as you want to 80x24 or 80x40 (or whatever) and it still does what it
pleases. Except that Console2 unerringly preferred my old MinGW .bashrc
file to my Cygwin one, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for a
tabbed terminal emulator.
How's mintty on that btw?

That's good to know, too. It's always better to use something that's
being maintained consistently by the author or a well-acquainted
successor. Even "Kompozer with a K and a Z" blew serious wind until the
Mozilla team brought it back under their umbrella. Not likely to happen
to rxvt -- the variants are better. I was going to suggest adapting
mrxvt to "play both sides of the fence," but if the trend is toward
mintty, I'll go with the flow.
