rxvt's man page lists '-title' as the preferred switch, but also mentions
that -T is supported as well for compatibility.  of the rxvt derivatives I
only have wterm installed presently, and while its manpage does not mention
the -T compatibility switch it does indeed honour it just like -title.

both programs support -e as well.  I'll let somebody else more familiar with
the others fill in the blanks (aterm, eterm, xvt, etc).
