Do you have a real-life situation where it is important to have
'normal-erase-is-backspace' to be different on different terminals?

We have some infrastructure to record the value in a terminal
parameter, but I don't see the mode function called when we switch
frames.  And a mode cannot be terminal- or frame-specific.

So it looks like if someone intended to make this work differently on
different terminals, they didn't finish the job.  Or maybe I missing
something; but if not, the question is whether we really need this
stuff nowadays, or is it obsolete and should be removed at some future
