Changing the menu to insert the -bg and -fg switches is window manager
specific. I use fvwm2, and created a ~/.fvwm2/main-menu-pre.hook with
this in it:
# Same as main-menu.hook, but entries are added at the
# very beginning of the menu.
# for example:
+ "rxvt" Exec rxvt -ls -sl 256 -bg linen -geometry 80x56
+ "rxvt (big)" Exec rxvt -ls -sl 256 -fn 10x20 -bg linen -geometry 80x56
+ "rxvt (black)" Exec rxvt -ls -sl 256 -bg black -fg white -geometry 80x56
+ "rxvt (black, big)" Exec rxvt -ls -sl 256 -fn 10x20 -bg black -fg white -geometry 80x56
+ "Emacs" Exec emacs -g 80x70
+ "Emacs (I18N)" Exec emacs -g 80x70 -fn fontset-standard
# and the following generates a horizontal line:
