In principle, every blacklised file results in the addition of a README.TEXLIVE
to the package. Otherwise, it is a bug, or the package hasn't been updated for
CTAN to TL since the pdf doc appeared on CTAN (this can happen for old packages).

- acromke, circle, easyeqn, mff, ntabbing, tclldoc are just not in TL any more.
- localloc and newvbtm were lagging behind CTAN, I just updated them.
- stmaryrd is probably in the same case (dvi doc in TL) but doesn't work OOTB
with our scripts, I hope Karl will get it to work (it should already be on his
- inlinebib: I see no PDF on CTAN, only a .htm file. However, texdoc was wrongly
ignoring .htm files (as opposed to .html) and I fixed that.
- pictex: the documentation doesn't live in the same directory as pictex on
CTAN, looks strange.

Ok, I added them. Thanks.

For both examples, README.TEXLIVE comes as the second result, right after the
package's README file. IMO this is fine and people should get used to try -l
when the first result isn't satisfatory (and ideally send aliases suggestion
here as you do).
