    As opposed to only a backspace key. Is this possible via Cydia? Searched here, googled, can't find anything but people requesting/desiring this feature.

    nope... none exist yet... I'm sure they won't make one any time soon since apple keyboards in general are missing this key.... personally i don't especially miss it since i don't do much text editing on my iDevices... but it could be an idea for a future app ;) why don't you develop it? :D could be a nice summer project :D

    True, but a forward delete can nonetheless be performed on a Mac by holding down either fn+backspace. or control+d. Interestingly neither combination works when you connect a keyboard to the iPad. iOS just lacks that functionality altogether.

    Control+D! The only thing I did not try! Thanks for that,
