>From changelog, regarding %r magic:

 No, "up + enter. One char magic" is not
	the same thing, since %r takes parameters to allow fast retrieval
	of old commands.  I've received emails from users who use this a
	LOT, so it stays.

The new %rep magic does the same thing much better

I think it should me mentioned in the docsting of %r, at least.
