I'm a little bit afraid of situations where a new binding is defined
but pre-command-hook has not been called (to restore the original
definition of `input-decode-map`). For example if a new binding is
established in a hook or when Emacs starts. If evil is loaded before
that binding is defined, i.e. input-decode-map is already 'patched',
then it may fail. Of course one could start with an unpatched
input-decode-map and wait for the first post-command-hook.

So the question is: is it guaranteed that a post-command-hook will be
called when Emacs starts and before any user input, and that a call to
`define-key` will always be preceded by a pre-command-hook and
followed by a post-command-hook, no matter how it is called? This
includes any possibility to call `define-key` from a hook or so. I
just do not have the overview to give a reliable judgement on this.
IMO using an advice is more direct and simpler in this particular
situation, although I really don't like it.
