I've added two programs to *-free package:


    - Displays notice that the *-free version can only handle older RAR
    - Refers to included downloader program (see next)


    - installs the *-nonfree that can handle later RAR archives.

This would solve the distribution issues by providing a downloaded code
only. Individual users can install the *-nonfree version if they so wish.

Having a RAR cabable extractor on command line would be an addition to


wget --recursive --no-host-directories --cut-dirs=3 \ \ \ \

$ find .inst/ -type f
