comment Terminal.app does not support alt/meta/command-key modifiers such as meta-backspace
Why should using Command as Meta be any more broken than using Option as Meta? On many non-US keyboard layouts, using Option as Meta prevents you from typing various characters that you need in the shell, thereby making the terminal emulator completely unusable. Sure, using Command for this purpose makes the terminal emulator a bit clumsy to use, but at least it's useful that way.
