I reimplemented part of it :-/ I have two excuses:
- for now I just wanted to play with it, this is temporary
- your Lua module isn't up to date :-) (It fails with current tlpdb.)

Now I am going to test things more seriously. I'd like to keep texdoc as
fast as possible. I did a few timing tests with my code, and the largest
part of the time is spend reading the file, not parsing it...

I thought I fixed that in v 0.50 (uploaded to TL last week). Please
complain again if it doesn't work with this version!
