In the development code, we allow cycling through the history of commands
using the standard bindings (up/down arrow keys, ^p ^n etc.). We do not,
however, have any mechanism to search through the command history (e.g.
the commands that start with 'a'). It may not be too difficult to
implement. Is this kind of 'cycling through the command history that start
with a certain sequence' feature available in some application?
