In ZWEI in Release 5.1, Experimental MIT 1.4, FEP 18, on Lisp Machine Sancho Panza (3600):
Any reason why (Backspace) is a self-inserting character in ZWEI?
Since the lisp machine can overstrike, backspace self-inserts. Since
the effect of accidental overstriking can be confusing (imagine getting
undefined function errors for DEFUUN), it is made visible until
you do m-X Set Backspace.
