Hi all,

I've been using the new IPython 5.0 beta since it was released. It's pretty
great, except for a few rough edges where I need to correct my muscle
memory that has been informed by readline.

Today I noticed that if your history includes multiline input, navigating
to older inputs can be painful, especially if your multiline inputs are
long. This asciinema illustates the issue:


Is there a way to navigate to previous entries in history that is smarter
about multiline input than the up-arrow key?
