script type
This script will autmatically delete \X escapes when the cursor is on the \ and you press X in normal mode or after the X and you press backspace in insert mode.  X and the delete key in normal mode and the delete key in insert mode also work.
install details
The mappings are buffer-local so you need to source it from a filetype plugin, for example, put it in ~/.vim and put "runtime SmartX.vim" in ~/.vim/ftplugin/perl.vim.
