Anything that read-event handles differently from read-char.  Maybe a
good starting point is to compile a list of the differences in
behavior between the two.

What about the features they expect?

If there's no better idea, we could copy read-multiple-choice into
nsm.el and replace read-char with read-event there.  But maybe there
are more elegant ideas.

I agree, I just am not convince that replacing read-char with
read-event is the right fix.
