Oh dear, that really does seem nasty to me.

I wonder if I am going about this in the wrong way. Given that this only
happens when quail is active, is it not quail that needs hooking?
"pre-quail-command-hook" or something. Quail knows that it's about to do
something weird that is not going to signal pre-command-hook because we
are still awaiting more information before the command happens.

If it works, it would mean that input-event-functions is not really fit
for the purpose I intended and should, perhaps, be removed.
