User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.5 (gnu/linux)

As no body is working on this, I started looking at this as I would like
to have a fix for this for helm, however I have difficulties as my C
level is 0.
Could you please bear with me on some points ?

It is here I don't understand, how do I make the correspondance with e.g
focus-in (the lisp symbol) and FOCUS_IN_EVENT ?

Ok, well you will tell me when I send patch...
