[Mono-osx] Mono TermInfoDriver and IronPython

I've been trying to run IronPython under mono on OS X/intel and have  
been having a couple of problems.

The simple one is I really wish there was a better way to override  
the default console of white on black, to some colors that more  
compatible with my black on yellow terminal. I temporarily solved  
this by modifying fg/bgcolor in TermInfoDriver, but it'd be really  
nice if there was some way to set a configuration. Perhaps it'd be  
reasonable to add system.terminfodriver or system.console to  

The second more difficult issue, is that OS X's Terminal.app really  
wants to send DEL (\0x7f) instead of BS (\0x08) and that IronPython's  
ReadLine loop isn't set up to respond to the DEL character. Should  
mono try to deal with the oddness of the OS X Terminal and remap its  
keys to look more like windows/linux? or should a console application  
be expected to handle keyboard remapping?
