Not really a standard, but man page for man on my OSX laptop says:

       -P  pager
              Specify which pager to use.  This option overrides the
MANPAGER environment variable, which in turn overrides the PAGER

POSIX only mandates PAGER.  See

As I said before, since pydoc is not man, if we want a pydoc-specific
variable to override PAGER, it should be callled PYDOCPAGER.
