The arrow keys, home and end keys work on a
line-by-line baisis regardless of wheter a line is
wrapped or not.

It would be very nice to have a (optional) mode in
which these keys behaved more like a word processor.
For example, in a long wrapped line, the up and down
arrows should move up and down within the wrapped
segments of the line, rather than jumping all the way
to the previous or next line.

I guess what I am asking for is *visual* cursor
handling, as opposed to the present system of *logical*
cursor handling.

Though the logical system is great for eiditing code or
config files, keyboard navigation in more texty
documents can be painful at times.
