In the "less" manpage, under the "INPUT PREPROCESSOR" heading,
"two scripts will allow you to keep files in compressed format, but
still let less view them directly" with less.

I may come to like less more than more, especially after I realise that
'&pattern' is not a commandline option, is regex, and can be turned on
and off. (I'll investigate the effect of the LESS_IS_MORE environment
variable, too.)
