Could be.  Then again, it's probably easier to do it right by modifying
the code of kill-line (tho, to tell you the truth, I'm far from).

This said, I find that visual-line movement works well *all the time*
(literally).  I've never felt like turning it off and the few times I've
bumped into it unexpectedly, I was positively surprised.

OTOH, I don't think I'd like C-k to work on visual lines (I know I hate
this behavior in Firefox), so maybe we should distinguish the
screen-line movements (which I could even consider turning on by
default) from other screen-line operations.
