No, the original one was written in 1976.

These control characters are the very basic move characters in emacs.
People have always been free to remap them if they want them to do
something else, but waking up in the morning and discovering that you
cannot move to the front of your current line, to the end ot it, one line
up and one line down  because somebody has changed this ***for everybody***
would get me quite upset, too.
