Yes, you can bind the "visual line" keybindings ("Go To Start of Display
Line" and "Go To End of Display Line") to the keys you like (even Home
and End if you wish).

However note that it's not perfect, we have some improvements to do on
that regard.  For example, you can't bind "select to the start of
display line" (we don't have it) to <Shift>Home, and apparently the "Go
to Start of Display Line" doesn't honor the "smart home key" setting.
