Hmm...while I realize that BarnOwl is not actually readline based, I expect pretty much all of my applications with command-line history to act like readline. This behavior definitely isn't what readline does, and I'd find it confusing for that reason.

However, I'd be totally in favor of C-r working as a reverse history search keystroke.

It would be convenient if you could do this sort of configuration from Perl-space, though. Is the command history exposed in Perl after the Great Editwin Rewrite Of Kcr?
