I understand, but the problem is, the manual doesn't make that clear
at all.  If you read the manual, "e" is only about mouse events,
accessing non-mouse event lists is not covered (in fact, even the fact
that they are lists is barely mentioned), and binding them to keys is
described deceptively, because the text uses KEY to describe what
should have been called EVENT.
