Hi Oliver,
	This seems like a useful suggestion.  I have implemented it in a slightly different form.  If you use the shift key while navigating the command history (i.e. shift up/down arrow or control-N/P), then it will jump to the next history entry that matches the current command name.  Available in the next daily build.
