I'm talking about Debian here.. it is installed.. though I get the complaint
trying to use vile-pager.  
But, why do we need it.. is calling HighlightFilter not enough?
It's also inconvent, because it seems to me.. that now the file is always
fed to vile via stdin.. and thus the suffix mode detection fails.
