Excellent, thank you Akira-san.  One small problem is that
the value returned contains an embedded double period for
no obvious reason :

> D:/TeX/Live/2013/../texmf-local

and whilst one /can/ "CD" to it and end up in the correct
place :

> D:\>cd D:/TeX/Live/2013/../texmf-local
> D:\TeX\Live\texmf-local>

it is certain to be confusing to the naive user.

But I may I suggest that information such as this should also
be exposable through the TeX Live manager GUI ?
