Excellent, thanks. On Windows, I tend not to like setting generic
environment variables like EDITOR, PAGER, etc, globally, but I can
certainly use a little wrapper script.

If I get to the point where I understand IPython internals well
enough, would you be willing to accept a patch that checks a config
option if PAGER isn't set?
