Well, that's not the whole story. The main function of texdoc is to
launch the document in a viewer when you type its name, and that works
very well for me most of the time: "texdoc paralist" (missing TL 2007,
but well), "texdoc gerdoc", "texdoc hyperref/manual". This main
function is *not* slow, and "texdoc -l <name> is quite fast, too. Only
searching for a regex pattern is slow.
