The objection was raised that we might want to use these keys for other
commands in the future in these buffers, and I agree with that.

Besides, there's a bunch of other modes that have buttons that already
bind n/p for other things, and TAB/S-TAB work in all these buffers.  So
I think we'd be encouraging users to remember the wrong set of key
strokes here: They should rely on TAB/S-TAB everywhere.

So I'm closing this bug report.
