This defines a global toggle named @var{global-mode} whose meaning is
to enable or disable the buffer-local minor mode @var{mode} in all
buffers. To turn on the minor mode in a buffer, it uses the function
@var{turn-on}; to turn off the minor mode, it calls @code{mode} with
@minus{}1 as argument.
Globally enabling the mode also affects buffers subsequently created
by visiting files, but not buffers subsequently created in other ways.
Use @code{:group @var{group}} in @var{keyword-args} to specify the
custom group for the mode variable of the global minor mode.
