 For those not following earlier posts,
 the cheat sheet previously recommended by Pascal is,
    http://cs.iupui.edu/~kweimer/EmacsCheatSheet.pdf

Thanks Doug, found it under ...etc/refcards/refcard.pdf
And it's indeed also a great resource I'd missed myself
(embarrassingly missed, since it's right there and
you'd think I'd have found it pretty trivially).
Funny how some of the things in that refcards/ directory,
like survival.tex, only have the .tex source, but not
a "compiled" .pdf (and pdflatex seems to have some little
problems with it on my slackware 14.0 default install).
  I'd incorporated some of Pascal's remarks and some of
the EmacsCheatSheet.pdf into my own forkosh.com/emacs.txt ,
but hadn't found some things like "goto line  M-g g"
that the refcard contains and that I'd been looking for.
