Yes!  I've been needing this and didn't even know it!

When in an aganda buffer, the cursor is usually way over on the left
side.  To help me focus my eyes on the task/tags/etc, I (without
thinking) lean on my <right> key to move the cursor over.  What this
actually does is move forward by about 10 weeks or so. :(
