I don't think we should modify those in order not to cause trouble
where they are used programmatically.  Either we add an optional
argument SCREEN-LINES to them which the interactive form sets to t, or
we create separate next-screen-line and previous-screen-line macros
that can be bound to the keys in question.  It is conceivable that we
would do this just in longlines-mode or similar modes.
