Not really. It toggles only when the mode function is called
interactively. Otherwise, a no-argument call always means "turn on".

Try to eval this a few times, for example: (linum-mode)

In the context of ruby-electric this is irrelevant anyway, though, since
it doesn't have a concept of turning off. Whenever called, it just
modifies ruby-mode-map to use its electric commands.
