Really?  Maybe it got lost in the transition from versions 2.6 to 2.7.
But even so, this "[t]" is the parameter KEY to define-key, so I really think
that there should be something in define-key's specification saying how
this works - or maybe a cross reference to where the various forms of KEY
are specified.

Do you mean here the description of `(t . BINDING)' in the "Changing Key
Bindings" page?  If so, I'm still mystified as to how 

[t] 'isearch-other-control-char

gets transformed into

(t . isearch-other-control-char)

in the keymap.  I'm no nearer to finding anything helpful in the info
pages.  Thanks for the reply, though.
