I've checked, and so does mine.  Ignoring it for compatibility may be an
option, then: it would just require dropping comments about its being an
obsolete option and updating the documentation to mention that it's
ignored for Pico compatibility.

I'm getting different results depending on the terminal (using -d, not
using -K):

Linux console, xterm, KDE5's konsole, urxvt: Backspace deletes
leftward, Delete deletes rightward
rxvt, xfce4-terminal, LXQt's qterminal: Backspace deletes rightward,
Delete deletes rightward
