Umm - netbsd supports more than just PC keyboards.
The specific instance that bothers me is wscons/x on real, genuine DEC
keyboards of hte LK-201 family, where
a) the larg delete-left key is expected to generate ASCII DEL
b) there is no "del' key in the 66-key keypad.
c) KP_DEL means something different.
in that situation, the xfree86 "solution" is unusable.
I _think_ I've seen a consensus to fix it.
Unless someone seriously objects, I'll commit a fix (as outlined
here a couple of weeks ago, probably in the Xterm resource file),
request a pullup, and try to explain to the XFree86 why this
Just Doesnt Work (not that I hold much hope).
