I have some mixed feelings about arb.  It causes trouble regarding
dependencies in several ways (needs motif, does not work with lesstif)
and other stuff I do not really like.  So if there are stron reasons
to kick sablotron this would probably a good reaosn to finally kick
arb as well.  However, is there any plugin replacement for sablotron
which I might recommend to upstream?

Kind regards
