This is not only horrible hack, it is a recipe for disasster and
broken at so many levels.  

Lets picture I am in an text-based application that responds to
keystrokes (mc, informix, oracle text uis, slrn, etc) and I select
"Fix delete key".  

Now I am streaming `stty erase ^h' down the connection, s might mean
`select', and `t' might mean `transfer files'.  What a disaster.
