I guess arcanist will also become irrelevant once KDE gets
rid of that phabricator nuisance.

  As one who has made use of various incarnations of the 'arc' program
since the 1990s, and as one who has been thinking about adopting the
'arc' package in Debian, I note that the 'arc' package has been in
Debian since 2004 while 'arcanist' has only been in Debian since 2015.
Therefore 'arcanist' has likely been violating policy since it was
brought into Debian.
  It's also interesting that the popcon for 'arc' (~1000) is some 10
times what 'arcanist' (~100) has, likely because 'arc' is an archiver.
  I also find it interesting that bug number 919697 was opened on
'arcanist'  as 'Serious' back in January about the same problem,
noting that "arcanist: file conflict with arc" but was then downgraded
to normal the maintainer. So that maintainer could have fixed the
problem at least when he uploaded a new version of the 'arcanist'
package in February, if he hadn't been aware of the problem until
then.
