2) As for display-style rubout processing - there is some problem
in that TOPS-20 does not provide a general protocol for cursor
control on "glass" terminals. Probably the best thing to do is
to use RDTTY for input which will allow rubbing-out to be done
by the 20X system, but which will likely require (SSTATUS LINMODE T).
I understand that 20X loses in this respect, but since BS-SP-SP wins
on most reasonable terminals, it would be nice to have a mode where
that is used wherever X would be on ITS.
