In emacs 24 this is the new feature controlled by the line-move-visual
variable.  Call me a Luddite if you want but in emacs 24 I turn that
feature off.  I am very much "used to using" the traditional behavior
and like it.

Thinking about it I think that the recent addition of line-move-visual
to emacs and not to libreadline is probably the reason for the request
for this feature.
