Useless maybe, but then again maybe the user won some time
by it. I often wind up with constructs like this.

Many times, you do 'less /path/to/file', then right after you
may want to run sed or grep on it, in which case I usually
find it quicker to edit the previous command-line as little
as I can, and just attach the grep or sed or whatever-command
to it: 'less /path/to/file | grep regex'.

And many times --this may be hurtful ;-) -- I wind up doing 'cat
file' on too large a file, followed by a quick command-
line edit that gives me: 'cat file | less'.

Basically, I think I (my fingers?, my eyes?) have trouble
getting to the '<'. I'm not a touch typist by any means.
