	screen follows policy since version 3.7.4-3:

# On Debian GNU/Linux, `<--' (Backspace key) should send char `\177':
bindkey -k kb stuff "\177"

Package: screen
Version: 3.7.4-6
 /etc/screenrc b69da5df1ee3b4b100985a45aa3e6986
> md5sum /etc/screenrc
b69da5df1ee3b4b100985a45aa3e6986  /etc/screenrc

	The terminfo entry for 'screen' was also changed to make bs=\177.
