Would like to use arg as a switch so I can enable or disable some emacs modes 
(customarily using
value of 1 to enable, and -1 to disable).  If no arg is supplied, I would like 
to enable the modes.

How would I define the parameter outside the function, and then pass it 
through.  I might require
a buffer local variable.
