Why?  Just use C-home and C-end.  You don't need them that often, eh?

Unlikely.  Those are keystrokes.  Just use

(global-set-key [home] 'beginning-of-buffer)
(global-set-key [end] 'end-of-buffer)

in your .emacs file.  That's all.  But why you should want it when
those functions are available on C-home and C-end escapes me.
