[tex-k] Unsupported extra colon in kpsewhich --expand-path

    a) It isn't true. On Windows the path separator is ';', not ':'.


    b) For what use is it to find the same files as
      `kpsewhich --format=texmfscripts'?

It isn't.  That was never its purpose.  My (probably useless) idea was
that if some random program wanted to look up files in some format of
its own (not part of kpathsea), it could use --expand-path and similar
to do some of the usual path expansions without reference to any
existing format.

I tried to clarify the doc.
