This is probably a good idea.

I do not think this should be the default behaviour (i.e., bound to the
arrow keys). The GNU readline library (which I asssume Octave uses)
already provides the bindable functions
`history-search-[forward,backward]'. These could perhaps be bound to M-n/M-p
(like tcsh does) as default, and users who want complete MATLAB
compliance could then bind them to the arrow keys.
