  Oops! Poorly phrased question. My apologies. What I would like to
  do is perform this query programmatically. 

  Is that possible?

  Now perhaps I should elaborate in case I am barking up the wrong
  tree and there is a better way:

  Let's suppose I want to write a subroutine that first, queries
  the major mode, and then calls the appropriate subroutine for
  the mode.

  *pseudo-code* example:

(defun previous-subroutine ()
  (cond
    (eq major-mode "python")(previous-python-subroutine)
    (eq major-mode "C")(previous-C-subroutine)
    (eq major-mode "rebol")(previous-rebol-subroutine)
  ))

  ;; and then keymap of course.

  thanks
  tim
