The suggestionS? Well, atm we can't make more than one alias on a given
name, so either we let texdoc search using filenames and we can have
more than one result, or we use an alias if we think the filename
doesn't give the correct result but then we can have only one result.

This may (and probably should) change later. I have a lot of little
things to fix before changing this.

I don't understand what you mean "links": texdoc is (currently) a
command-line tool. Do you want it to generate a html page and open it in
a viewer à la mthelp?

I'd like to recall that the search mode can be useful for such cases:

texdoc -s xetex

gives you a lot of results (unfortunately, some of them are not
pertinent) and you just have to press a number in order to display one
of them in a viewer.
