If you want that (or any other access to existing kpathsea stuff)
just let me know, it easy to add extra bindings.

That could be a bit harder, because kpathsea does not normally
change variables after they have been defined, and I am not
easier to actually extend the kpathsea library itself.


Best wishes,
