Re: 23.0.50; delete vs deletechar

To clarify, I spotted two issues that are tangled up -- here is
an attempt to separate them.

  1. What should pressing the <delete> key on the linux console
    deliver? [delete] or [deletechar] I ask this independent of
    the command that that key invokes --- purely for knowing what
    should be used in lisp code that binds that key.
  2. When one launches Emacs on the console,
     and then runs emacsclient at a different console,
     should the new frame inherit normal-backspace-is-erase ? I
    believe it should -- it currently does not.
