from http://www.slackbook.org/html/file-commands-pagers.html

about less :

"less is more, but more more than more is, so more is less less, so use 
more less if you want less more."

about most :

"If less is more than more, most is more than less."

unfortunatelly, most doesn't exist yet under cygwin :-(
