bug#1525: prompt string for execute-extended-command not flexible

The prompt string for execute-extended-command is “M-x ”, but that is not correct if the command is bound to some other key by customization.

Kevin Rodgers gave this explanation recently in “gnu.emacs.help”:

Change this code in src/keyboard.c and recompile emacs:
   /* This isn't strictly correct if execute-extended-command
      is bound to anything else.  Perhaps it should use
      this_command_keys?  */
   strcat (buf, "M-x ");

So, possibly the promp can be changed to “Execute command ”.

Thanks.
