We may be partly miscommunicating.  With other languages, such as
Lisp, C-M-e moves to the blank line after the defun from _anywhere_
inside the defun.  (Except in weird cases, such as this,

    (defun foo (a b)
      x y z))

where the extra closeparen after the defun means the only valid place
to stop is before the extra closeparen.)

You're planning to break that rule, right?

I think that this rule behavior will be useful in other languages too;
maybe breaking it is not a good idea.
