Bug#1978: man: default pager should be less

I think this would be much more useful with the info pages.  Info is
just as intuitive as vi (that is, not at all) and I think that makes it
a bad format to store documentation in.

I believe there is already a program to do info->html, but if I recall
it uses 10's to 100's of megabytes of VM to do its job.  Not exactly a
well-written program... :)

Any programmers out there itching for something to write?
