It saddens me that we can't better help people who have a custom
LESS/MORE/LV set out of the box, but I think I agree that the intimacy
with the pagers was just getting too ugly. So I agree we want to drop
what you have there.

I was planning to try to clean up the "like this..." patch to the
Makefile I posted earlier, but haven't gotten around to it. It seemed
like you were positive on that approach. Let me see if I can do that.
