OK, then how's the following?

Subject: [PATCH] Clarify what constitutes an event (bug#35238)

* doc/lispref/commands.texi (Input Events): Specify that events are
non-nil and remove vestiges of bug#10190.
* doc/lispref/os.texi (Recording Input): Document optional argument
of recent-keys.
* lisp/subr.el (eventp): Check that the car of conses is non-nil.
* etc/NEWS: Announce it as an incompatible change.
* src/keyboard.c (Frecent_keys): Clarify that returned "events" are
not real events.
