Okay, well I was hoping to have more time to do something with your 
patch, but I really like what I see.  I was able to make it cycle back 
through when reaching the end or beginnig of the history list, which 
could well be all the functionality we need.  I like how unobtrusive it 
is.  The question becomes whether to implement what I proposed in my 
earlier mail (and well in the past).  I guess the question comes down to 
whether people who use the current non-pico search behavior want to hit 
<down arrow> two times to start with a blank line.  Hmm.
