How do you solve the problem that the commit you revert was solving? The
commit you propose to revert says in its message:

    git-column can be used as a pager for other git commands, something
    like this:
        GIT_PAGER="git -p column --mode='dense color'" git -p branch
    The problem with this is that "git -p column" also has $GIT_PAGER set so
    the pager runs itself again as another pager. The end result is an
    infinite loop of forking.

There's probably a solution, but you can't ignore the problem (or
someone else will later try to solve the infinite loop and revert your
commit, and so on ...).
