Do we know if we are upstream of a pager that reads from us through
a pipe (I think we should, especially in a case where we are the one
who processed the "git -p $alias" option)?  Is there any other case
where we would want to ignore child's death by SIGPIPE?  If the
answers are yes and no, then perhaps we can ask pager_in_use() to
decide this?
