Sure, and thanks for working on this.

You can do that with a 'switch' in C, or, better, with a C array that
holds the symbols and their corresponding C event_kind values, like
this:

 struct event_value {
   Lisp_Object event_symbol;
   enum event_kind event_kind;
 };
 static struct event_value symbol_to_kind[] = {
   { Qfocus_in, FOCUS_IN_EVENT },
   { Qhelp, HELP_EVENT },
   { Qiconify, ICONIFY_EVENT },
   ...
 };

Then, for each symbol, you can find the corresponding event value by
walking the array until you find a match.
