I also found it used in term/keyswap.el.  Is that obsolete too?  I
have been meaning to complain about that code, as it seems to
unconditionally swap ^h and DEL, and provide no way of undoing it (of
course one can just set keyboard-translate-table to nil manually).  In
addition, it seems to assume that keyboard-translate-table is not used
beofre it's loaded---it simply overwrites it.  Is this superceded by
normal-erase-is-backspace-mode?  Should it be declared obsolete?
