That might make sense... the caller could always apply the coding system manually before dumping things back in the unread-command-events queue.

Who currently uses read-* that might be affected? xt-mouse.el would love it, mouse.el certainly won't care, and other xterm processing will be indifferent.

BTW, I've been playing with read-key and it's perfect for making mouse.el and xt-mouse.el play nice together! I'm a tad unclear on the difference between read-key and read-key-sequence, though, other than the latter letting you supply a minibuffer prompt.
