What's with the angle bracket quotes? Here is
what the docstring to `scroll-bar-mode'
actually say:

    With a prefix argument ARG, enable Scroll
    Bar mode if ARG is positive, and disable it
    otherwise. If called from Lisp, enable the
    mode if ARG is omitted or nil.

It is the last sentence that perhaps is missing
"If called from Lisp *the same rule applies but
it is also possible* to enable the mode if ARG
is omitted or nil.

As it stands, it sounds like in Lips, there is
another set of rules altogether, and you are
left in the dark as how to *disable* it...

But Rusi seems to be upset about something
else, quoting fictitious documentation?
