OK, my question for IPython 5: how can I make up arrow show the
previous entry (assuming the cursor is at the top of a multiline
input)? Right now up-arrow shows the most recent entry that starts
with the text that is already typed.  I managed to change this for the
current version of IPython (I think by deleting the parse and bind of
the arrows to history-search-backward from the default configuration
