That's a fair point, but what of the case where we are more than likely
flooding the user's screen, and here is an obvious and unintrusive way
of preventing that?

What are peoples' thoughts on making it a (default off) option, or one
that can be applied like:

    auto-pager = cat diff blame

The latter resolves the issue of which commands to apply the
functionality to.


Gentoo, for when 13 hours of your time is worth more than the 0.1
nanoseconds your CPU saves during use.
