Awesome! We found issue
1393<https://github.com/ipython/ipython/issues/1393>to be pretty cool.
It's the ctrl-r history search functionality for the
qtconsole frontend. Is anyone actively working on this?

In the docs it's mentioned that the Ipython terminal uses the GNU readline
library for it's ctrl-r functionality, but on this issue MinRK said it
would have to be implemented from scratch because qtconsole doesn't use
readline. Is there a specific reason it doesn't use that library? If we
could use it would implementing this involve just connecting the right
pieces in the right places? If not, where would it be best implemented from
