[fwd: Bug#340125: octave-mode rebinds M-BS]

I am forwarding below a bug report filed against the octave2.9-emacsen
package.  The submitter claims that the meta-backspace should not be
bound by octave-mode.  

I would like to hear from you whether backward-kill-word is really the
standard keybinding for meta-backspace and whether it should be changed
or not.

Package: octave2.9-emacsen
Version: 2.9.2-2
Severity: normal

Octave-mode (in xemacs 21.4) seems to be rebinding the meta-backspace

M-BS runs `octave-mark-defun' 

This is unwise because it's a standard keystroke (backward-kill-word)
which many people frequently use as part of normal editing. Changing
the definition to something else is confusing and annoying to these
