I gave it a try (just commited in TL). Here is the result on my machine:

Usage: texdoc [OPTION]... [NAME]...

Try to find appropriate TeX documentation for the specified NAME(s).
With no NAME, print information about texdoc (--help, --version, --files).

Current settings: --alias (default); --list, --nointeract (user config).

  -h, --help            Print this help message.
  -V, --version         Print the version number.

I preferred using the long form for more readability.

I hope the whole thing is more understandable now.
