I believe arla needs to have some effort put into it to get it
working on -current.  I started looking into that about six to
eight months ago, but ran into a streak of bad luck trying to
do anything at all with -current, and eventually gave up.  That
wasn't arla's fault, I was just having a string of bad luck.

Now that I'm having much better luck with -current, I haven't had
the time to go back and look into arla.  Also, since that time
there has been a fair amount of progress with openafs support for
freebsd, and for my own purposes that would be an "easier sell" to
my managers anyway.  [not that I have openafs working on -current
either, but I do hope to get to that soon...]

When I was looking into this, I was talking with Andrea Campi about
some changes he had for arla on -current.  He was also very busy at
the time, but maybe he still has that around.  (I'm in the middle
of upgrading & shuffling my hardware around, and I think I lost my
copy of those arla changes in the process of that shuffling).
