    I know that GNU lost me when it came to help systems when they thought it
was a keen idea to bind ^? and ^H to "help" in EMACS.  Sounds logical on paper
until one realizes that ^? and ^H are DEL/BS or BS/DEL depending on one's
terminal settings.  So imagine my first experience with EMACS where I was
hitting backspace to get rid of some text and kept getting popped into the
help system.
