[I erroneously sent this message to Mosè privately. I'm thus resending
it on the ML.]

FWIW I wrote and use which
calls texdoc with completion, based on the data found in `kpsewhich
Data.tlpdb.lua` distributed with texlive.

A few remarks (some were raised by Mosè in our private exchange) : it
requires lua to be installed (this could be avoided by using texlua,
included in TL, or by parsing that file in pure elisp) and probably also
requires TL (e.g. I'm not quite sure miktex has the same Data.tlpdb.lua
file) and uses ido (which some will like, but other will prefer another
completion framework).
