texlive.tlpdb? Isn't that just the database used for selection and
installation of TeXLive packages? Why should it use that - that would
restrict its use to packages installed that way, whereas now it can also
show you locally installed and even user-specific stuff.
And it's a lot faster with luatex than it used to be as a shell script.

texdoc -s geometry | grep pdf does just the same.
Would you like to have a --format=pdf option?
