For the reason outlined by BrowserUK below, I often like to just dump the help to stdout so I can use (in most terminals) Shift-PgUp and Shift-PgDown to look through it while actually typing the command.

Of course that's still possible either way. Doing something like "program --help | cat" could probably trick less into thinking it's not connected to a terminal.
