I use

less -XFR +G

to page some variations of git log, and all four options are important.

The thing I don't like is that it fills the screen with empty lines (marked with ~) when the log/file is shorter than a screen.

The shorter repro steps that I could find are the following:

echo -e 'one\ntwo\nthree' | less -F +G

I would like the command to behave just like it was not there if the file fits the page.
