Hi Trevor,

It is hard to understand the problem without an example.

When did you get the message and why was it not appropriate?

The origin of the org-meta{up/down} feature was to be able to move table
lines one by one.

By a small generalization, org-meta{up/down} also moved lines up/down
outside of tables.

The idea behind the current behavior is to think in terms of elements,
not in terms of lines -- which is good IMHO.  (A line is an element of a 
table, so moving line by line here is the right thing to do.)

Please explain the problem a bit more.  Thanks!
