Agreed.  The only difficulty is in building the reverse mapping, and in
making it apply to all forms of the key (with arbitrary modifiers), all
this ideally without adding yet-more-ad-hoc-C-code in the
read_key_sequence monster (or even removing some of it instead).

Ideally, the same technique can be used to map mouse-4/5 to
wheel-up/down (with or without arbitrary modifiers).
