I think it's already pretty standard in text oriented Cocoa applications for
Cmd-Left/Right Arrow to take you to the end of the line.

I've actually used one keybinding from TextExtras to implement Opt(alt)-V to
be a page backward with cursor movement (a-la emacs) since Ctl-V is already
there in Cocoa for page forward with cursor movement. Of course there are
already other emacs-like key bindings in Cocoa but I tend not to use them;
too used to Mac after 15 years away from UNIX.

Good Luck,
