It may be best, but is it practical?  Will aliases help when you have
dozens of manual.pdf files?  

I suspect it is much easier to make changes in texdoc to support 
"package/manual".  On systems that support symlinks one could process
the doc tree to make package/manual.pdf -> package/package.pdf.
