That part is not a problem, since I pass only strings to `kbd'.

Mmh, maybe it should better ask: if KEYS is a string that describes a
key sequence in any format that Emacs understands, or in the format that
is used for keyboard macros, and I call `kbd' on it, is the result
always a representation of same key sequence?  The docstring of `kbd'
leaves open what it does with formats different from the keyboard macro
format.  Or is there any test that I could use to decide whether KEYS is
in the keyboard macro format?
