yes, but there are two arguments to kpse_set_program_name. The second
one does what kpsewhich's --progname argument does. So I can find 


by changing the second argument to latex and cslatex. 

And I can search for 'other text files' as well. I have not tried
'other binary files'. 

So it looks as if I can get all features by faking the program name
alone. This is probably the simplest (and bulletproof) solution.
