I do not have enough experience with those functions enough to make a call either way. I am simple trying to reach a closure for this issue. I just recently stumbled upon this this-command-keys change between 24.5 and 25.x versions. And I would like to have it fixed the correct way that the consensus decides and at least have the documentation reflect the current state of things.
And I don't think the view that the current behavior is correct is
shared by everyone.

So I don't see how you can be so sure about this.

Looks like there's an unspoken consensus about how this-command-keys behaves right now, and so this bug thread had been dead since Dec, until I discovered this issue recently.

If this-single-command-keys has to be obsoleted, or if this-command-keys has to be reverted, IMO this bug is a strong candidate to be able to delay the 25.1 release (unlike what Dmitry thought of as a non important enough blocking bug). So I had to speak up for this one in that emacs-devel thread.

I will willing to help in whatever way to help reach a good closure for this bug.
