Dear Aquamacs users,

in future versions of Aquamacs, would you like the C-e, C-a, C-n, C-p move according to buffer lines, or according to visual lines?  Note that these are different things when soft word wrapping is turned on. 

In such a case, if they moved by buffer lines, then C-a would move to the beginning of the paragraph (i.e. the long buffer line that is displayed wrapped), and analogously for the other key commands.

It may be less surprising for people if C-e, C-a, C-n, C-p acted on visually displayed lines.

We can then provide extra bindings for the buffer lines, probably C-E, C-A, C-N, C-P.

Your input would be appreciated.
