At least debian and gentoo include their own version of lesspipe in the
less package. Nor sure if we should do the same or include this package
here.
I use this since a week or so and it works well so far.

I'm not very creative on creating descriptions. Please feel free to
change it. ;)

Applied with the following changes. Note that the license is GPLv2+
because there’s nothing stating “version 2 only”.

Thanks!
