Add aliases for more/less

Issue #1 resolved

My muscle memory for looking at files it to type "more <filename>". In shelldap, not only does that not work, but it gets confused and won't tab-complete the "filename" part.

Honestly, I don't care if they actually go to pagers or not, it would just be handy to have more and less aliased to cat.

    Actually, it might be kind of nice to just shell out to 'more' or what-have-you. I'll add it, along with 'less'. Or maybe make the pager a preference (that defaults to 'more'), and alias all more/less/whatever to the same pager.

    I'll include that (if it exists, I don't know if it's a reliable ENV to use exclusively) in the list of 'stuff to try'. If absolutely nothing reasonable exists, then it can always fallthrough back to the 'cat' behavior.
