I hate to be annoying - but after a little while using the vi
keybindings, it's still pretty frustrating to have to type ESC in
order to get the old Ctrl-p behavior.  Is there a way of configuring
this in the IPython configuration?   I think others might also prefer
to have the old Ctrl-p behavior as the default.

Is it possible to switch back to the old readline support, in the worst case?

See you,
