perhaps the wording is a bit confusing, since it says:

$ tlmgr show kpathsea
Collection: [...]

which implies that what is shown is (are) collection(s) which the
package is part of.

Maybe it should be changed to "Reverse depends:" or something like that,
since it could show not only collections but packages occasionally.

or, it should show the one and only collection, and then the reverse
package dependencies on a separate line, if any.
