I am sorry, but I should not try to type before having coffee. I meant, how do you re-read the .inputrc file without exiting the shell?

I found the answer by reading the bash man page (imagine that?). Use the following command.

bind -f ~/.inputrc

You can substitute another filename to read keymaps from that file.

ive read that manual a lot but you know, its oh so long and, many subjects are discussed at multiple occasions.
so thanks for that one i had missed.
it will probably come to replace my previous inputrc key-binding:
  control-r: re-read-init-file
