This is one of the valid ways of fixing the Delete/BackSpace trouble. Another
class of solutions is to use OSF virtual bindings (about 3 different ways of
doing that). The potential drawback of this one is if some X-application should
happen to have Delete hardcoded for deleting. Anyone know if there are any such
