Understood, although just about anything is preferable to Delete :)

Since Fn functions as a modifier, perhaps one of the Mod keys, e.g.
Mod5 might be a better choice.

As long as it can be distinguished from any other key, we can use
xmodmap to map it to whatever we want (e.g. Control_L for me).

xkb_keymap {
        xkb_keycodes  { include "xfree86+aliases(qwerty)"       };
        xkb_types     { include "complete"      };
        xkb_compat    { include "complete"      };
        xkb_symbols   { include "pc+gb+inet(pc105)"     };
        xkb_geometry  { include "pc(pc105)"     };

I get the same output regardless of whether X is started with or without
an external keyboard plugged in (is the external keyboard even
