OK, now it works.  But just for the record using this format does not
work for me:

  (define-key gnus-summary-mode-map (kbd "[right]") 'gnus-summary-show-thread)
  (define-key gnus-summary-mode-map (kbd "[left]") 'gnus-summary-hide-thread)

Whereas, this does:

  (define-key gnus-summary-mode-map (kbd "<right>") 'gnus-summary-show-thread)
  (define-key gnus-summary-mode-map (kbd "<left>") 'gnus-summary-hide-thread)

Thanks.   So those other fellows using <> must have different output
from those keys than I do eh?
