Exorcising the Evil "Alternate" Screen

You know how in Linux-land when you're in an xterm or something and less/man/vi/etc always wipes the screen when you exit and it gets really annoying? I finally found some links that help fix it. Since I use less and man a lot, EXPORT LESS="-X" and alias less='less -X' has worked well so far, but I haven't gone to fix my vimrc yet.

I don't use gnome-* crap but this might be useful too:
