Ah yes, of course.  It would need to be assigned.

Why?  It's autoloaded.  The problem is more that I am fuzzy on what
Emacs versions to require here if any.  Until rather recently, Emacs
tended to lose events placed into unread-command-events when they were
arriving not one-by-one.  With many MIDI input applications (but not
necessarily all) that's going to end up a problem.

If I require a sufficiently new Emacs version (I don't think any
released version suffices), the cl-lib dependency should be a non-issue.
