Good idea. Thanks for suggesting that. The keystrokes don't work with
CodeMirror either so that's a clue. What exactly is IPython's relationship
to CodeMirror? CodeMirror looks like a really good idea BTW. I noticed that
it's keybingings are configurable,
http://codemirror.net/doc/manual.html#keymaps. Would this be worth taking a
stab at?
