I mentioned that this is configurable in Icicles. You can use any keys you
like for this Icicles feature, if you decide to add it to Emacs.

You can also decide, for instance, to adopt only the optional modal behavior
that some Icicles users prefer. In that case, you need only two keys for all
of: history cycling, prefix-completion cycling, and apropos-completion
cycling. The current mode determines the behavior of those two keys.
