I did that 'more' release as part of getting together some packages for
a minimal but still somewhat useful Cygwin installation. I like 'less'
and have never actually used 'more'. I'd actually prefer if we could 
symlink it to 'less' for the people who are used to it and drop the 
separate package.

Anyway, thanks for the upload but I guess I'm still MIA. :)
