Applied, thanks.

    Is there a function which I can feed a filename

Not that I know of, but we can add it somewhere, I guess to TLPDB.pm.
I.e., given a tlpdb instance and a filename, it could return a tlpobj
structure.  Shall I?

    When I read the manpages, it seemed to me that the runpattern,
    docpattern etc. directives are used for assigning files to packages.

The default (as before) is to include directories with the same name as
the package ("xetex" in this case).  TLPSRC.pm kind of talks about this.

    What I'd like to do is provide a patch to the effect that
    texmf-dist/doc/xelatex/philokalia/Philokalia-Regular.otf is moved to

That's a matter for ctan2tds.pl, not the new infrastructure stuff.  I'll
take a look.

In general, ctan2tds.pl is what gets things from CTAN into TL.
The purpose of TLPDB is to represent what is in TL, not how packages get
installed in it in the first place.
