The reason it was changed was that the bol/eol bindings are apparently
what the majority of windows programs use (I don't know if it's actually
true!).

Of course the change is going to annoy users of emacs (or mozilla!) that
are used to the old bindings, but users that are used to windows are
more likely to use those special keys than `veteran' emacs users, and
also less skillful at customization.
