emacsen displaying latin1 and del/backspace keys



Hello!

According to our release goals, all application should be aware of
latin1 characters. To enable this on emacs 19.34 you must set the
variable standard-display-european. Is this the case on the other
emacsen, too!? Then it should be part of emacsen-common.

The same goes for the correct meaning of the delete and backspace
keys.

Here's a file that is installed by my user-de package to customize
emacs to be more friendly to the german/european user. It sets the
meaning of the home/end keys, too. I think that the file should be
removed from user-de and put into the emacsen package.
