How about C-k?

I personally like the new behavior, even though it is
indeed inconsistent.  But if people want to change the default,
that's fine.

Maybe we should have a 3-value setting: fully visual-line based
operation, fully logical-line based operation, or half-assed
(visual-lines for C-n and C-p but logical-lines for the rest).

I'll let people fight over which default should be chosen.
