ipython keybinding

I just installed ipython http://www-hep.colorado.edu/~fperez/ipython/.
Wow, what a fantastic python shell.

So far I have just two items on my wishlist:

1) Is it possible to bind the 'up/down' arrow keys to the same
   function that C-n/C-p are.  The latter only bring up previous
   commands that match what has been typed before, while the former
   bring up the previous/next command regardless of the text entered
   so far on the prompt.

2) Is it possible to run ipython in an emacs shell, or is this in the
   works (ala matlab-shell)?  I fear the answer is no, since the
   default editor for the @edit command is vi, which leads me to guess
   that Fernando is a vi user.  This is not a big requirement, since I
   can just pop open a quick emacs session from within ipython with
   @edit, but we emacs junkies like to do everything within one emacs
   session, for cutting and pasting text across buffers that are
   already open, etc...

Thanks for any suggestions!
