Agreed. That is about as good. (But again, it's not about the input
_history_. It's about a set of possible default values.)
The only reason what I suggested might be considered slightly better
is that `C-p' is generally thought of as accessing the input history
(see the above confusion), not the defaults.
That's the case at the outset, but of course once you've used one of
`C-n' or `C-p' the other just reverses within the list (inputs or
defaults) that you started cycling, until you get back to the starting
point (origin, dividing the two lists).
