I am a bit surprised that you say this, as Org-mode does overrule
the special beginning/end of line commands that visual line mode
normally installs.  Have you not missed these?

Have you been playing with org-special-ctrl-a/e, and
org-special-ctrl-k, and what do you think should the
behavior be in this case, if visual-line-mode is active?

Thanks for pointing out that mode, it look interesting and seems
to be a lot more usable with Org than longlines.el
