Use up/down keys in contact list

It should be possible to use the up and down keys when viewing the contact list to scroll up and down.  It would be nice if Ctrl-Up and Ctrl-Down would recpectively go to the top and the bottom of the list.

Left and right keys should also be doing something useful, possibly go up and down one page.

I started a similar brainstorm here:
