Yes, it was quite easy, something like kpse.expand_var TEXMFDBS plus a
loop over things mathing [^:]*, afair.

Still, kpse.show_path will be nice. Thanks.

CORRIECRAVIE (n.)
To avert the horrors of corrievorrie (q.v.) corriecravie is usually
employed. This is the cowardly but highly skilled process by which
both protagonists continue to approach while keeping up the pretence
that they haven't noticed each other - by staring furiously at their
feet, grimacing into a notebook, or studying the walls closely as if
in a mood of deep irritation.
