When the RichIPythonWidget is embedded in another app, hitting a in the paging widget (during long completion) switches the focus to another Widget in the app where the IPython widget is embedded. This commit fixes that behaviour, by making the TAB key also scroll a page in the paging widget.

Unfortunately the PR doesn't currently merge, you'll need to rebase the commit against master before we can review it. I'm afraid there's been enough recent code churn in master that this fell behind, sorry about that. Ping us if you need a hand with the rebase; just do a forced push to your branch when done.

We'll be happy to take a look then. Thanks!


Ok, I force pushed a change. Thanks!


Great, thanks for the fix.
