#4593: history-next and history-prev behavior

 Two-parter, referring mostly to finch:

 1) Ctrl-p and Ctrl-n do not scroll through the IM history (for example, to
 resend a message when a connection error occurs, etc.). The default binds
 for these commands in pidgin is Ctrl-up and Ctrl-down, but I can't make
 these work under finch. Regardless, finch seems to use a lot of readline's
 keybinds like Ctrl-u, Ctrl-e, etc; shouldn't it respect Ctrl-p and Ctrl-n
 as well?

 2) I could make this behave with the following .gntrc entries:

 c-p = history-next
 c-n = history-prev

 But that seems backwards? History-next brings up the last typed message?
