So can someone tell me what deal is with the `mode-line-inverse-video'
variable?  It suffices to force mode-lines (and header-lines) into
inverse-video if their face doesn't do so, but setting it to nil doesn't
do the opposite.  Since I would guess the primary use of this variable by
users is to *turn off* inverse-video mode-lines (as the default is t),
this behavior only confuses things.

I would suggest that it's simply too blunt a stick, and should be removed
(with some documentation referring to the appropriate faces to modify),
or the current behavior reversed (i.e., if it's nil, then force all
mode-lines to be non-inverse-video, otherwise do nothing).
