I think it only makes sense to write it in the C code if the resulting code
can be shared with Fread_key_sequence.  Until such a reorg is done, it'd be
good to provide the function in subr.el along the other posn-* functions.

But in order not to make it appear like an "accessor function", maybe it'd
be better to name it differently, e.g. "posn-lookup-key-binding".
Of course, another way to do it is to change `key-binding' so that it
accepts a `posn' argument (and/or an event argument).
