pager in wallet program

I recently got an email from someone who has been using the password wallet program. The reader asked about the possibility of using a different pager when viewing the password file (the "less" pager is hard-coded into the program).

I thought this was a good idea, so I've changed the wallet program to allow the user to specify the pager using the WALLET_PAGER environment variable (which defaults to "less"). You can also put this in the .walletrc file. The reader wants to use w3m, so this should now work in .walletrc:

WALLET_PAGER="w3m -o bg_color=blue"

I've updated the program in the google code repository.
