I agree.  My suggestion is also to reduce this function to run "texdoc
NAME".  `C-u TeX-doc' could run "texdoc -l NAME" and let the user choose
a number.  I also agree that autocompletion is useless here.

If I get it right MikTeX also includes "texdoc", so it seems to be
portable as well.

Best, Arash
