Currently, minor modes are not automatically turned off; packages that
define minor modes *need* a FEATURE-unload-function. See allout.el,
hi-lock.el, hl-line.el, linum.el, etc. Turning off the minor mode
should remove these hooks.

I agree that the documentation should better reflect what
unload-feature actually does, but I won't be the one writing it. I
suck at that.
