thanks for looking at this.  I have one question: Would it make sense to
move the (executable-find "texdoc") further up in the function body?
Currently, we do:

(if arg
      (insert (shell-command-to-string
               (concat "texdoc --list --nointeract " pkg)))
       ((null (executable-find "texdoc"))
        (message "texdoc not found"))))
  (if (executable-find "texdoc")
    (message "texdoc not found")))

The way I see it the code executes texdoc and checks later if it finds
it, and then again further below in else part.

Or am I missing something?

Best, Arash
