I'm not a bashophile, and I apologize if I misunderstand your request
because I deleted the rest of this thread without reading it, 
but if you mean the "Backspace" key, try putting the following in ~/.inputrc:

set bind-tty-special-chars Off
RUBOUT: delete-char

the "Delete" key already works that way for me.
