I agree that this would be useful, but I don't think it should be the
default.  I'll see about adding a feature similar to the HISTIGNORE
feature from bash, but probably only for the 2.1.x development sources.

For now though, do the history and run_history commands, or the
reverse searching feature in readline (C-r) help?
