   Evaluating the form

     (goto-char (point-max))

   has the same effect, and buffer *Messages* will contain the line

   if: End of buffer

   I doubt that this behavior is desirable.

I sent a revised version of kill-whole-line.  That revised version
should not yet be committed, because I still want to change the
documentation string and add comments.  The behavior you describe
would remain unchanged, however.  What part do you consider undesirable
and why?  I do not understand why you get the "if" in:

if: End of buffer

Even with the present version I get, after evaluating your progn:

kill-whole-line: End of buffer

Other than that, the behavior is no different than if you replace
kill-whole-line with kill-line.  Why should it be?
