Indeed, this is much better.
The only problem I still see with it is that it interacts poorly
with aliases.

E.g. to take a concrete example:

     (put 'set-file-modes 'interactive '(list ...))
     (defalias 'chmod 'set-file-modes)

M-x chmod should work just like M-x set-file-modes, but AFAICT your code
won't handle it right.


PS: One of the funny things we can do, OTOH is:

    (defalias 'load-library 'load "docstring")
    (defalias 'load-file 'load "other docstring")
    (put 'load-library 'interactive '(...))
    (put 'load-file 'interactive '(...))
