I can recognize a bug when i see it :-) ^H should be free of use
because some terminals use it for the backspace key, period.
I see no harm if we just remap it in ~/.emacs and ~/.jedrc

Let's not talk about it anymore, at least not on mailing list.


P.S Leave poor Microsoft alone, "Micro$oft/M$/Billy the kid" jokes
are not funny anymore.
