    Keys are just integers in Emacs.  There is nothing that makes any integer
    special wrt to keys.

It would be feasible to define a custom type that would
display these vectors or strings of integers in a way
that is convenient when they are really key sequences.
It could be called `key-sequence'.

I don't plan to do this myself.
