Ok, in case Thomas is really short of time here is [1] my late (well, 
midnightly prepared ;-) debian/ directory for the new source package of ara. 
I named the two binary packages as ara and xara-gtk (since not sure if 
someone can write a qt gui for it ;-), but for the time being I left the 
executable brought by the xara-gtk package as xara. 

If Thomas keeps being busy I hope some official DD proof-reads the files and 
sponsor the package, since I'm not an official one.

hope that helps.
