[AUCTeX-devel] Accessing TeX-related documentation

Occasionally I find myself opening an external shell for running
texdoc.  I think it would be nice to have access to TeX-related
documentation from inside Emacs.  We could start with something like

(defun TeX-doc (name)
  "Display documentation for NAME."
  (interactive "sCommand or package: ")
  (call-process "texdoc" nil 0 nil name))

I'll have to check if MikTeX offers something similar.

Maybe this could be expanded later to include command references like
<URL:>.  Also, etexshow for ConTeXt
could be hooked in.

Would that be nice?
