So, would something like the following be acceptable?  Clément, do you
envision this working against any of your planned changes?

Subject: [PATCH] Substitute command keys in button help-echo values

For consistency with tooltips displayed via show-help-function, make
forward-button also substitute command keys in the help-echo values
it displays in the echo area.
For discussion, see the following thread:
* lisp/button.el (button--help-echo): Pass resulting string through
substitute-command-keys for consistency with show-help-function.
* test/lisp/button-tests.el (button-tests--map): New test keymap.
(button--help-echo-string, button--help-echo-form)
(button--help-echo-function): Use it to test command key
substitution in help-echo strings.
