How about making new functions for the visual movement, and binding
different keys to _them_ :

Since visual line movement is occasionally useful, but nonsurprising
keyboard macros probably more important for my usual use of emacs,
I was vaguely considering doing that locally, effectively - leaving
line-move-visual on, BUT binding up/down and  C-n/p
to next/previous-logical-line, and putting the (visual)
next/previous-line on M-up/down (yes perhaps trouble on some terminals,
but my terminal seems to handle it okay)

But if next/previous-line were what next/previous-logical-line currently
are, and next/previous-visual-line were introduced to be what
next/previous-line currently are, I'd probably prefer that. Slightly
less surprising than having to use next/prev-logical-line where
next/previous-line used to suffice.
