A couple of administrative things, FYI:
* The best mailing list for questions like this is
  address@hidden' (cc'd).
* Please use plain-text, not HTML formatting, when sending mail
  to either the bug list or the help list.

Wrt your question, here's what I would suggest:

In Emacs 22+, where (fboundp 'command-remapping) is non-nil:

 (global-set-key [remap open-line] 'other-window) 

In Emacs before 22 (no command remapping):

 (substitute-key-definition 'open-line 'other-window global-map)
