no, not really. i do this only because if i set PAGER, then elm will use
$PAGER instead of it's built-in viewer. since i don't use elm anymore, i
should break the habit i suppose :-)
man is about the only program i use which i want to use less - at all
other times i just run (or pipe into) less at the command line.
(reminds me of my wish-list for less - i wish it would enter a file
browser mode if you run it with no arguments. i can't stand mc or any
of those supposedly easy-to-use menu shells, but a simple pick-list of
available files would be useful).

correct. i mis-typed it.
