Right.  I forgot about that.  Presumably there's no linux standard that 
says Alt-Backspace should be translated to ^H.  If there were such a 
standard, then Alt-Backspace would never work as backward-kill-word in 
emacs under linux.  So, again, I would vote for following the linux 
standard if there is one, and leaving Alt-Backspace alone otherwise.
