Change default bindings for Up/Down in command mode
Those now look at the history again.
Looking at the behavior in different applications:

- vim: History
- spacemacs: Completion if open, else history
- luakit: Completion if open, else history
- dwb: Always completion (has no history?)
- vimb: Nothing if completion open, else history
- vimperator: Always history

So this is consistent with at least some of them - the much more important
factor is that <Tab> is probably intuitively easy to discover if up/down doesn't
do what's expected, but <ctrl-p>/<ctrl-n> are not.
