Rxvt is an 8-bit clean, color xterm replacement that uses significantly
less memory than a conventional xterm, mostly since it doesn't support
toolkit configurability or Tek graphics, but also since features can
be removed at compile-time to reflect your needs.
The distribution also includes rclock, the smaller/better xclock
replacement with appointment scheduling and xbiff functionality.

resource/long option that non-rxvt is available only in

dimensions earlier to reduce the probability that the window
manager interferes
