There's an ancient and pointless argument about whether the Backspace

I was asking something slightly different: Can cygwin terminals be
configured so that emacs can tell the difference between the Backspace
key and "pressing h while holding down the control key"?
I've searched the cygwin mailing list archives, and the question has
been asked before. The answer in the past has always been No.
If the answer is indeed no, then I'll have to see if there's a way to
change the emacs splash screen so that it offers F1 as the help key
instead of C-h. I can also try the emacs-devel list; Cygwin can't be
the only platform where this is an issue.
