Description of problem:
lesspipe.sh should handle directories in a similar fashion to tarballs, rpm
files, etc. currently, less gives a "xxx is a directory" error message when it
is trivial to add support for directories to less vi the lesspipe.sh mechanism.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: / is a directory

Created attachment 57210 [details]
the above patch implements this.
