You can get back the emacs 23 way of doing things with

(add-hook 'org-mode-hook
   (lambda ()
     (define-key org-mode-map "\C-a" 'move-beginning-of-line)
     (define-key org-mode-map "\C-a" 'move-end-of-line)))

I personally don't like visual line mode at all, because much
of what I am doing is line-based stuff (source code, for example,
or headlines in Org), and I want these commands to got to
syntactic positions, not visual positions that depend on the
width of my window.
