It seems to exist.  The interactive version is `M-x quail-show-key', and
the programmatic version is `quail-find-key'.  For example, using the
latin-1-prefix input method, M-x quail-show-key on ä outputs:

  To input ‘ä’, type ""a"

and (quail-find-key ?ä) -> ("\"a")

Both of these depend on the current input method, of course.
