Make completion dialogs use Line up/down shortcuts

It would be really useful to be able to use my Line up/Line down shortcuts to choose a selection in the completion popups. I use a vi-esque keybinding scheme, so taking my fingers off the home row when typing feels awkward.

Actually, to extend the request, it would be nice to be able to use text area navigation shortcuts (prev/next char, line up/down, select, etc.) in QuickNotepad and the Find dialog.

Looking at CompletionPopup (I don't know how extensively it's used), it
seems possible that instead of switching on keyCodes:

switch(e.getKeyCode())
{
case KeyEvent.VK_UP:
moveRelative(-1);
e.consume();
break;
case KeyEvent.VK_DOWN:
moveRelative(1);
e.consume();
break;
...

, the popup could register as a shortcut listener for the "logical" line
up instead of the "physical" key press.
