I realize modern pagers like 'less' can automatically exit if the
output is less than a screen. But are we sure it's true for all
pagers? It would be annoying to have a pager waiting for me to exit
when I only want to check one config item out (which prints one line).
Trading one-time convenience at reading the manual with constantly
pressing 'q' does not seem justified.
