I just implemented the following in CVS:

    In text edit mode:
        Home goes to the start of cell content
	End goes to the end of cell content
	Ctrl-A goes to the beginning of the current line
	Ctrl-E goes to the end of the current line
	Enter can be inserted into cells
(Ctrl-A and Ctrl-E seem to be broken just now.)

The bindings are available only on new or -new -dcold'd spaces.

However, the line breaks show on screen as spaces.  It's as much I could
get to work for now.

Home, End and Enter will appear in 0.1.4.  Ctrl-A and Ctrl-E will if
and only if I can fix them.
