I'd rather we left things as they are. Especially if we actually finish and
merge in the work to execute the pager automatically as we've started working
on over in the automatic-pager branch.

Once we have the automatic pager it'll be inconvenient to flip from one help
topic to another since you'll have to leave the pager.

There's also been some discussion about making the man pages be generated from
our help output rather than be a fairly static file telling people to run our
help sub-command.
