I reverted David's change and replaced `delete-backward-char'
by `backward-delete-char', which isn't caught by the compiler*.

`backward-delete-char' is remapped to `delete-backward-char' 
by Emacs and `delete-backward-char' is remapped by Org to

Thanks for your patience on this one!

* This looks weird that an alias isn't caught by the compiler, 
I'll let Emacs devs know about this.
