vi mode / readline / inputrc / history

This is freaking awesome:

k: history-search-backward
j: history-search-forward

… in ~/.inputrc allows using j/k for scrolling through history in vim mode. 1 This configures readline that then is used by (at least) bash, zsh, and fish.

TODO get proficient with them and learn how exactly they are better for writing code.
