Is it possible to bind ⌘← and ⌘→ on Terminal.app?

Is it possible to bind ⌘← and ⌘→ on Terminal.app?

I'd like to bind ⌘← and ⌘→ on Terminal.app to going to the start and end of the line respectively so it behaves like any (almost) other program in Mac OS X. Is it possible?

"This may not be possible because ⌘← and ⌘→ change focus between multiple Terminal windows, a functionality that appears to be built-in. I checked out the Secrets Preference Pane for Terminal and there doesn't seem to be anything there.

Having said that, a similar move that's convenient on MacBook or MacBook Pro keyboards is ⇧fn← and ⇧fn→, which correspond to ⇧↖ and ⇧↘."

I have actually psueodo bound this by using controllermate to emulate ⇧↖ and ⇧↘ on using ⌘← and ⌘→, and attaching it to terminal as the focussed application. works like a dream.
