That's not quite what you were looking for - You said "in one
keystroke".  You can get this by having special commands for this.  Here
are the commands I use:

(defun screen-top ()
  "Move the point to the top of the screen."
  (move-to-window-line 0))

(defun screen-bottom ()
  "Move the point to the bottom of the screen."
  (move-to-window-line -1))
(global-set-key [C-left] 'screen-top)
(global-set-key [C-right] 'screen-bottom)

Copy these lines into your .emacs file (if necessary, create this file
by doing C-x C-f ~/.emacs).  C-<left> will then go to top of screen,
C-<right> to bottom of screen.  Modify the last two of these lines if
you prefer different key sequences.

This is very off-topic, but I've never understood the logic connecting
the second bit of that sentence to the first.  Couldn't God have somehow
arranged eternal life without being complicit in torturing somebody to
death first?
