What terminal programs have the following characteristics?
- Unicode support
- geometry, fg/bg colours, other options settable from command line on a per-invocation basis
- actively supported
Background: I don't want or need a lot from my terminal emulator, but the ones I've used recently don't quite stand up. I've been using Xfce generally for a few years, and hence xfce4-terminal is my default: it's good, lightweight, and modern, but is limited in its command-line configuration; in particular, I cannot set the background colour on a per-window basis (afaict). I've also used xterm since basically ever, which is highly configurable, but... aging... and my current xterm install lacks good Unicode support (among other modern conveniences, but that's the big annoyance at the moment). I've also used rxvt, but it looks like that hasn't been updated in years.
