AAQR: TuxKeyboard (free, input method)

TuxKeyboard is the same keyboard as Gingerbread default, with one important addition: it adds swipe up / down / left / right as "arrow keys". As most soft keyboards do not have arrow keys are you reduced to tapping repeatedly trying to get at a particular location.

This is a great idea in theory. In practice things are a little rougher, as if you don't swipe "just right" you end up touching one of the regular keys. There also don't seem to be any word completion help. Still, if you need a keyboard with arrow key cursor support, this may be something to try.

Rating: Try it
