Thats cool, but not what I want.

I want to be able to replay all the commands I have typed in, subsetted by their
initial string which I have so far typed into the minibuffer, with each press of
my up-arrow key.  I don't know how to be any more specific or clearer.  This
behavior is possible at the bash shell prompt when you configure inputrc
correctly, but I want it within emacs when I am cycling through arbitrary
commands after typing M-x.

If you haven't done this in a shell, you probably dont have any idea what I am
talking about, but I am not sure how to be any more explicit -- I give an
example in my first email.

If I knew, I would happily, but I don't.

They are just parantheses, not a command (like this).
