I agree, and I like your minor mode idea.

Is it as simple as this:

(defvar ffap-mode-map
  (let ((map (make-sparse-keymap)))
     ;; see ffap-bindings:

     (define-key map [S-mouse-3] 'ffap-at-mouse)
     (define-key map [C-S-mouse-3] 'ffap-menu)

     (define-key map "\C-x\C-f" 'find-file-at-point)
     (define-key map "\C-x\C-r" 'ffap-read-only)
     (define-key map "\C-x\C-v" 'ffap-alternate-file)

     (define-key map "\C-x4f"   'ffap-other-window)
     (define-key map "\C-x5f"   'ffap-other-frame)
     (define-key map "\C-x4r"   'ffap-read-only-other-window)
     (define-key map "\C-x5r"   'ffap-read-only-other-frame)

     (define-key map "\C-xd"    'dired-at-point)
     (define-key map "\C-x4d"   'ffap-dired-other-window)
     (define-key map "\C-x5d"   'ffap-dired-other-frame)
     (define-key map "\C-x\C-d" 'ffap-list-directory)

     ;; (add-hook 'gnus-summary-mode-hook 'ffap-gnus-hook)
     ;; (add-hook 'gnus-article-mode-hook 'ffap-gnus-hook)
     ;; (add-hook 'vm-mode-hook 'ffap-ro-mode-hook)
     ;; (add-hook 'rmail-mode-hook 'ffap-ro-mode-hook)


(defvar ffap-mode-hook nil
  "Hook run by `ffap-mode'.")

(define-minor-mode ffap-mode
  "Toggle `ffap' bindings in every buffer.

  :global t :lighter ""
  (run-hooks 'ffap-mode-hook))

It was a typo, but a serendipitous one.  I was going to add it to
Wikipedia's list of portmanteau words, but then Google pointed me to
userful.com, a company that markets a GNU/Linux-based PC for public
places like libraries.
