Has someone been able to use this patch to get VIM to work with urxvt?

Many terminals have recently added support for so-called "rxvt" and "sgr" mouse modes which are superior to the traditional "x10" mouse mode. Unfortunately, screen doesn't recognize any of them and filters out their escape sequences.

The attached patch implements support for x10, utf8-x10, rxvt, and sgr mouse modes. It also fixes a long-standing bug where mouse sequences are mangled if they get split across 2+ I/O calls.
