There might be others ways to do it, but macros are simple:

- Start Recording a macro (Look in Bundles > Macros)
- Type ⇧⌘L (Edit > Select > Line)
- Type ⌘X (cut)
- Stop Recording macro
- Save Last Recording (e.g. in YourName's Bundle)
- Uncheck "Use local clipboard (...)". Important if you want to be  
able to paste it after.
- Give it an unused key equivalent (the hardest part ;). I use ⌘⌥X.

Now cut lines. ;)
