Is there a reason to use `function-key-map' for this,
rather than `key-translation-map'?  Is it so that they won't
be translated if they have bindings?

In any case, the name `function-key-map' doesn't fit this kind of
usage.  I gave it that name because its main purpose was to map escape
sequences into function keys, but that job is now done by

So perhaps we should rename the current `function-key-map' to
`default-key-translation-map', then rename the current
`input-decode-map' to `function-key-map'.

What do you think?
