Thanks for the suggestions.

I used fundamental-mode, always. It turns out that you can't add hooks to
that mode, so I changed my default mode to text-mode, and then added this

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook (lambda () (interactive) (highlight-80+-mode 1)))

The define-globalized-minor-mode also looks interesting, I'll try that out.

I have now worked a couple of days in text-mode instead of fundamental-mode,
and I can't detect any difference at all (which is good for what I want). Is
there a difference other than the hook stuff?

It looks like the most noticeable difference between text-mode and
fundamental-mode is that by default text-mode puts a newline at the
end of the file when you save if there isn't one already.
I dislike this behavior so wrote:

;; See also 'mode-require-final-newline'.
(add-hook 'text-mode-hook (lambda () (setq require-final-newline nil)))
