If I invoke the lldb help on a given topic, most of it flies off the screen.

(lldb) help expression

It would make sense for the lldb help to be paged like gdb (and probably to use
that pager for other long text too).

I understand that there are various workarounds, like using a terminal window
with a scrollbar (provided you don't use a multiplexer like screen, which
messes that up).  The best work around for help appears to be something like
the following from another window:

lldb -b -O 'help expression' | less

which is still somewhat clumsy, especially compared to the ease of use of gdb
