        Common trend is to use stty erase value for
key_backspace. In that way you can easily set it to whatever
you want or what suites your terminal even without root access.
        Some people may say 'that evil M$-DOS use Backspace
for Backspace key, let's do the opposite'. But I don't think
this is relevent.
