[IPython-User] Feature request (or can this be done by configuration?)

I've been using IPython as my system shell for a while and I love it,
but I reverted to FISH (Friendly Interactive SHell
<http://fishshell.org/index.php>) because I was missing 2 features
1) Command history.
In FISH I can type:
~ $ sudo apt-get autoremove
And later type
~ $ autore<up-arrow>
and I'll get the command "sudo apt-get autoremove". In IPython I
would need to type "sudo...".
I guess this cannot be done just by configuration.
2) Directory history.
In FISH I can do this:
~ $ cd workspace
~/workspace $ cd myproject
~/workspace/myproject $ <alt+left>
~/workspace $ <alt+left>
~ $ <alt+right>
So you can browse your directory history as you would do in your
browser. Very handy.
Can IPython be configured to do this?
If IPython could do the 2 things above it would be the absolute best
shell out there.
I this the right list/place to post a feature request?
