Maybe more minor modes should be defined using
easy-mmode-define-minor-mode...  

(What follows is a feature request, therefore Cc:
address@hidden)

easy-mmode-define-minor-mode should automatically create
toggle-x-mode, turn-on-x-mode, and turn-off-x-mode functions...  At
the moment it just creates the x-mode function.  It does, however
create x-mode-on-hook and x-mode-off-hook, which is a nice idea.

Alex.
