How to toggle a minor mode is a frequently posed question.
`C-h m' should speak to it.
It's the same for all minor modes, and it should be stated in
the output of `C-h m'. It need be said only once for all
minor modes, but it should be said. It shouldn't take more
than a sentence.
Another frequent question is how to turn OFF a major mode.
It's not obvious that the answer is to turn ON some other
And yes, the command that turns ON a given major mode should
be given by `C-h m'. This too is not obvious, at least for
some major modes.

Thank you for that. I won't see the result for a while.
I hope that the rest of this bug gets fixed as well, if
it hasn't been already.
