[tex-k] kpsewhich --help is unwieldy

I just typed kpsewhich --help and the output reached (on my
80-character width screen) 522 lines, which is unhelpful.

Could the list of recognised suffixes be made available through a
separate command such as kpsewhich --help-suffixes (with a note to
this effect at the end of the ordinary help)?  And maybe not list the
expanded paths, as they take up most of the screen space, and are
available through other easy-to-use documented means if required?

Best wishes,
