describe-variable also tells people what the original value was.
Perhaps describe-key could also do the same.

xxx runs the command yyy
It is bound to xxx
It was originally bound to aaa and bbb.

This would mean keeping track of all keymap states -- there is no
"original value" for a keymap.  Or at least keep a list of all
overwritten values in `define-key' and friends.

I don't think this is particularly useful, and it would require more
infrastructure than it's worth.  So I'm closing this bug report.
