[dev] Launching new terminals in $PWD

I was trying to create a shortcut to launch new terminals in my current
working directory. I've seen there's a two year-old thread, and a patch,
about this, which probably means that the kind of easy solutions I've been trying
cannot work. Still, I wonder, wouldn't it be possible to use config.h to
bind a key combination to, say, "urxvt -cd $PWD", or "pwd | urxvt", or
"urxvt -cd `pwd`". None of these options work, and I am not sure why --
I guess pipes cannot be used? And env variables are somehow not read?

What am I doing wrong here?
