after the discussion cited below, this TODO item had been added:

** Remove the default toggling behavior of minor modes when called from elisp
rather than interactively.  This a trivial one-liner in easy-mode.el.

Could this code be installed now?

| Not really.  It just means that the argument passed to the minor mode
| function in the absence of a prefix-arg won't be nil but will be `toggle'.
| As a matter of fact, this is already the case.
| The current code already emits a warning when the minor mode is called with
| a nil argument and the minor mode is already enabled (i.e. when a nil
| argument is used to toggle the mode off).

Bye, Reiner.
