The confusion that both Matthew and me had here was that the doc string
talked about "inquiring what events that invoked it", and
`this-command-keys' talks about "return the key sequence that invoked
this command".  So it's not an unnatural inference to make that these
things are somehow tied together.

I've now clarified the call-interactively doc string to say explicitly
that the argument affects the return value of the interactive spec of
FUNCTION.
