arp rewrite...

	Last time when I sent an email to net@ for comments, I
	received only limited feedback. 

	The New ARP code in my home directory on FreeFall and was 
	lasted updated on June-8-2007. It was based on then 
	CURRENT (7.0) and was tested to be working fine at
	that time. A bit more work would be necessary in locking
	though. I asked for code review and folks to play 
	with it. Again, the feedback was really scant. 

	The code is accessible at

	The question I asked then was "should I move forward?"

	I'd be more that happy to resume and be done with it.
