Yeah, I don't think converting them en masse sounds worth doing.  It
needs care in every case, and specific testing, or you will risk
introducing bugs.

I don't think I see what has changed.  This is what I get in Emacs 27.2:

    (kbd "C-x a")
    " ^Xa"

If I did my job right, nothing will have changed as this should just
be a straight conversion from CL-Lib to ELisp.  I might have made a
mistake somewhere, of course, and as I said I didn't look it over for
correctness in much detail yet.
