<backspace> and DEL

I want my backspace key (the one to the right of "+=") to invoke
`backward-delete-char-untabify' in all modes.
 lisp-mode.el binds <backspace> to `delete-backward-char' and
                    DEL to `backward-delete-char-untabify', while
 cc-langs.el binds <backspace> to `c-electric-backspace' (which DTRT) and
                   DEL to `delete-backward-char'.
This inconsistency is extremely annoying: there is no way to customize
emacs to always untabify on backspace.

(this is not a problem for me, I can use hooks &c, but what about the
users who are supposed to do all their customizations via customize?)
