I guess that comes from texdoc selecting a package from the list at
random, and then presents the documentation files for that package.

That means although the list of packages considered is constant, the
list of documents shown then change due to the nondeterminstic selection
of one package.

My ideas are:
- offer the list of package names and let the user select, then show the
  doc files
- show doc files of all packages in the list

Not sure which is easier/better to do.
