You ignore the point I made: netbsd is not posix (no pun intended) and
simply doesn't have the power to force it's api as standard on the rest of
the world easily (GNU/Linux has vastly more power, but it sitll is nothing
compared to, say, posix).
But it is obvious that you don't care - that's the real problem.

And it is not causing a problem here.

First of all, I don't control rxvt, second, I don't control netbsd, I only
control rxvt-unicode, and there is no bug in rxvt-unicode, so it cannot

The quotes are entirely inappropriate - it's quite assy of you to claim that
something needs fixing in urxvt when the problem is only in netbsd.
You could at least play nice and acknowledge that the problem is in
netbsd, even if netbsd doesn't care to fix it and requires other
applications to work around it.
This attitude is what makes people annoyed about netbsd - there is nothing
that needs fixing in urxvt, and you quite well know that, even if for
publicity reasons you act as if there were a problem.
Why you think thats appropriate, nobody knows, but it doesn't pay off.
