It's possible you don't need to reload the mode at all. This is Lisp,
after all, not C. If you change a function definition, you only need to
eval it (eval-defun, bound to C-M-x in emacs-lisp-mode), or you can
recompile the entire file.

If you change a defvar, eval'ing that won't load the new value, but you
can simply use setq to set the new value.

IME it's hardly never necessary to actually unload a feature and then
reload it.
