Integrate pager support with the PlainUI

Registered by Clark Boylan on 2010-02-17

Currently when tables are printed all rows are printed immediately, large table results blow by, and often fill the terminals scrollback several times over. Pager integration is needed to make viewing these result sets sane. Boots should integrate with pagers like UNIX's less and more.

Sprints

Whiteboard

An implementation has been merged into trunk. There was some question on the automatic behavior and it was decied that as close to `less -XF` as possible is desired. Future work should allow users to change the pager during run time.
