I see. I didn't know that. Is that map perhaps for a local version of the
minor mode? That is, are there two different maps, one for global use and
one for local use? I'm just curious - this is new to me. If so, is there a
naming convention for that, or should there be one? How about
`iswitch-global-mode-map', instead, to signal that a (minor) mode is
