That is the typical defensive developer reaction that makes
sure bugs stay for a long time.

The next-line command is a cursor movement command, but it
used to add lines to the file if you went past end-of-file.
A bad bug, but for years people said that individual users
could fix it in their individual .emacs files.
And thus it happened that thousands of people had something like

(global-set-key "\^N" 'my-next-line)
(defun my-next-line (arg)
  "next-line, but do not go past end of buffer"
  (interactive "p")
  (if (not (eobp)) (next-line arg)))

in their .emacs. And thousands of others were bitten.

If there is a bug in emacs it must be fixed in emacs.
