screen BS/DEL debian policy conformance


Some time ago there was a discussion about correct handling of BS and DEL 
keys and apps that need to be fixed. screen is/was one of those, that changed
the BS/DEL behaviour. screen windows generate ^H on BS. The version i checked
was 3.7.4-6.

Simple fix (in either /etc/screenrc or ~/.screenrc): 
bindkey -d -k kb stuff "\177"
termcapinfo * '' 'kb=\177'

Better fix would be to change the default BS behaviour in sources to be
policy conformant.
