That's a bonus for the lazy typist such as I.  I've previously had to
hold the Ctrl key at the same time to recall the history list.  The
easier things get, the easier we want them.

For the similarly lazy mouse scroller, I offer the following.

      (global-set-key [M-mouse-4] 'smart-comint-down)
      (global-set-key [M-mouse-5] 'smart-comint-up)

Behaves somewhat odd when not at point, but it's harmless.
