[PATCH] woman.el (woman-file-name): custom option `woman-use-file-direct

Hi everyone and Merry Christmas!

Sometimes a system may have several versions of man pages. E.g. my cygwin 
installation has these for "ls":
- c:/cygwin/usr/man/man1/ls.1 -- ls (fileutils) 4.1 (April 2001)
- c:/cygwin/usr/share/man/man1/ls.1.gz -- GNU coreutils 8.5 (June 2010)
In this case woman.el asks you to select one.
This is distracting if you are in the middle of something and want to quickly 
refer to man, and don't care about the particular version.

I attach a small patch for woman.el that fixes this.
Tested on: GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2010-11-10 on SHAN-PC

It's less than 20 lines (I've signed a GPL waiver before, but that was like 10 
years ago).

Cheers! V
