Would someone please work on this?

I can't do that now, however I have a suggestion. define-globalized-minor-mode takes care of the nasty technical details, but maybe it could still be easier to use. If we assume that the minor mode to globalize is defined with define-minor-mode we know how to turn it on and off. How about something like this? :

  :turn-on-if (lambda() ....)
  :turn-off-if (lambda() ...)

where the two functions should used for turning on/off the minor mode in each buffer when the globalized mode is turned on/off.
