+oh, btw, Ctrl-H and Backspace are treated the same (at least after my
+recent changes to TermInfoDriver.cs) on my system where Ctrl-H is set
+as the Backspace escape-sequence.
+Okay, so the last remaining part of this bug, then, is interpreting
+Ctrl-? as a Backspace... which I'm not sure we should do, seems
+somewhat dubious if the user's Backspace escape-sequence isn't Ctrl-?
+fwiw, Ctrl-? on my terminal means erase a chunk of input (8 characters?)
+TermInfoDriver.cs doesn't handle it like my bash shell handles Ctrl-?,
+so I'm not sure what to do about that...
