Great quote for the OP on the thread. 

I for one would be for switching it to ‘less -M’ then it would respect a users 
wish to use environment variables LESS and LESSPIPE but still carry the 
traditional behavior.

Hi,
one of the first things I do when I install FreeBSD is to switch the
default PAGER from more(1) to less(1). This is particularly
convenient, e.g. while using git diff, to show something more
readable.
Just out of curiosity, is there a reason why more(1) is still the
default, and/or is this just historical?
