[dev] [dmenu] Readline Bindings

A few problems with the current 'readline' bindings:

C-w is not extremely useful as it considers that anything except
'space' is a word character.

That's now the default bash behavior and it can be overcome by
appending the following lines to your .inputrc:

    set bind-tty-special-chars off
    C-w: backward-kill-word

I find the behavior of C-f and C-b to be counter intuitive in the
'fallthrough' cases.

Besides, 'C-p' and 'C-n' are inverted:
    case XK_n: ksym = XK_Up; break;
    case XK_p: ksym = XK_Down; break;

Has a vim style path completion (C-x C-f) been considered?
