That depends on your terminal configuration. I think you can tweak it
somewhere in terminfo/termcap, but I don't know exactly where.
You can get the old behaviour with a UUOC:
darcs --help | cat
By changing the pager, you can make this the default. For example:
if [[ $TERM = dumb || $INSIDE_EMACS ]]
then export PAGER=cat

I disagree. Indeed, when ANY command's output exceeds the terminal's
height, I'd like the output to be implicitly paged. Until I learn how
to configure that generically in bash, I welcome it on a per-app basis.
