Does this program handle anything that libarchive does not already
have?  libarchive already ships its own command line utility (bsdtar),
plus there's other frontends with less confusing names available.  The
only use-case for "unrar-free" would be to inevitably push people
towards the non-free unrar when it inevitably fails to upack that one
of several weird rar files [1].
