One Quickie

Fixing emacs backspace in screen (emacs->General)
When running emacs insde of screen, screen helpfully turns the backspace/delete key into "^[[3~", which gets turned into a forward-delete. Unfortunately, just bashing deletechar into backward-delete-char-untabify causes backspace in incremental search to cancel the search, which is annoying.

One option is to set the TERM env var to rxvt:

% setenv TERM rxvt
Before cranking up screen.
