Hmm, does somebody really expect keyboard macros to work reliably over
years? (Even if they may have worked in some cases.) Well, I have used
Emacs less than year but I see macros more like temporary helpers.
I'll have line-move-visual turned on from the day I upgrade to Emacs 23,
regardless of the default. I think it's the normal behavior in text
editors and pretty much in all text editing and thus it's sensible
default. Long-timers with their years-old keyboard macros do know how to
deal with Emacs configuration.
