Wouldn't it be better for Drew to write a function using his own recipe
and use that? Then it would still work if the whole quit-char thing will
be implemented later.

(The crucial difference relative to your view is that Drew distribute
his libraries separately from Emacs and I believe he wants them to work
in both new and old versions of Emacs. If not there will be a lot of
extra trouble for him and the users of his libraries.)
