This is useful but not the same as M-p and M-n in tcsh, which is why I
bound them to keys.  If you type, say, "g" then M-p repeatedly you get
all command lines that begin with "g".  I use this *all* the time, as
an alternative to "!g" because it lets me see if I got the right
command line before I hit Enter.

Just for the record: I am *not* a vi user and would not want to be
associated with advocates of such an editor.  So there!

I wish my mouth had a backso^Hpace key.
