I don't really know.  Especially because I don't know when key-translation-map
is supposed to be used (it seems that it tends to be used more or less
interchangeably with function-key-map for very low-level things).

Let's say you bind `foo' to [?é].
Should (where-is 'foo) tell you that it's on C-x 8 ' e ?

Don't worry: I have no intention to spend any time on this.
I have plenty of other silly things to do,
