For xterm you need
Xterm*VT100*translations: #override \
<Key>BackSpace: string(0x7F) \n\
For athena widgets you need
*Text.translations: #override \
(Backspace already does the right thing)
Many specific apps will need changes, but that's not your problem.
I'm not sure the best place to put these though; probably in the
/etc/X11/Xresources file. It might be easier to patch the source so these
/are the defaults.
