In principle, we could adopt whatever syntax we want, as long as we
keep the old code working.

Introducing `kbd' enabled us to support a new, incompatible syntax
alongside the original syntax.  If we decide now on a syntax that is
not upward compatible with `kbd', we could support it using a new
function, perhaps `key'.
