For the stable production release promotion, should we enforce this in a 
postinstall script, e.g /bin/rm /bin/zless if /bin/less is not 
installed, or leave it installed as the "platform" does not lack less, 
and it could be installed later, possibly requiring a permanent 
postinstall script to un-/re-install zless or link to it from somewhere 
like /usr/libexec/?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
