I don't want to dissuade you from working on this, but if you're looking to
get your first patch accepted promptly, you might be better starting with a
relatively simple bugfix, rather than implementing a new feature. We often
set the bar quite high for new features, because a feature that 80% works
can be worse than not having that feature at all.

If you do want to work on Ctrl+r in the Qt console, hunt out the code path
that runs when you type something in and press the up-arrow.

Best wishes,
