[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?
