The doc string of auto-composition-mode says:

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

The doc string suggests (but does not clearly say) that ARG present
and non-nil disables the mode.

In fact, using M-:, (auto-composition-mode t) enables the mode.
(auto-composition-mode 0) disables the mode.
(auto-composition-mode 1) enables it.

It seems this calls for a doc string fix, or a code fix.

Maybe this command is generated by a macro; the macro may
need fixing too.

We say these things for every mode, so this issue is not specific to
this particular mode.

I believe the fix is to add "also" to the last sentence (as in "also
enable the mode if ..."), but is this really so serious to require
changes in hundreds of doc strings?

seem to mean, "If the arg is omitted or nil, enable the mode;
otherwise disable it."  I was surprised by the actual behavior.

Does that text come from a macro?
