Several people have spoken against that option, but I think it's
actually pretty clearly an improvement over the status quo.  If you
don't want to see all of that output, fine; look at the first
screenful and then quit your pager (which probably means "press q").
If you do want to see all of the output, you'll appreciate not having
it indented by 60 or 80 columns any more.  There's really no
circumstanced under which it's worse than what we're doing today.

It's fairly likely that there's no option here that will please
everyone completely, but that's not a reason to reject a patch that is
clearly better than what we've got now.
