I'm not so sure about that (and I'm still waiting for the shock to wear
off). I've set PAGER mainly for man, but that does not mean that I'd
like svn diff to use it by default. It's too much unlike the rest of the
world, and what about svn cat, ls, log, etc? It's easy enough to type |
$PAGER, or to write a wrapper script, IMO.

/Tobias, promising to reconcider the day when ls uses PAGER by default
