I download windows version of less pager and try to use with IPython. I 
install less and set environmnet variable PAGER to less.

When pagination is needed then less invoked correctly, I guess. But less 
don't understand coloring escape sequences and show those in text. Very 
unpleasant. Is this intended behaviour and I must do use NoColor scheme 
when I want to use less or I need to invokre less with additional 
parameters to force them to understand coloring escape sequences. Or 
this just problem specific to windows port of less?
