One possibility that did occur to me last night was
that my program could itself introduce a new minor
mode, invoke it, and do something to assure that its
keymap is at the front of the list.  Then it _could_
override the bindings of other minor modes.  Yet you
did not suggest this solution.  Is there some reason
why it would not work?
