Thanks. Although Vim grabs the newline with "v$", I often find myself typing
"v$h" to get what I really wanted, so I won't vote either way on that particular
aspect of the issue.

Not having "V" (visual-line) grab the final newline, however, prevents easy
copying of lines, and that's keeping me solidly in Vim for now.

Thanks again. Normally I'd prefer to offer a patch, but elisp is still eludes me.
