Here's a couple of ideas I had recently about making psql a bit more user friendly.

First, it would be useful to be able to set pager options and possibly other settings, so my suggestion is for a \setenv command that could be put in a .psqlrc file, something like:

   \setenv PAGER='less'
   \setenv LESS='-imFX4'

Probably other people can think of more uses for such a gadget.

Second, I'd like to be able to set a minimum number of lines below which the pager would not be used, something like:

   \pset pagerminlines 200
