arcconf seems to be reliable (and a native amd64 binary), except for the 
aforementioned hanging-on-exit issue with -RC1.  On -BETA4 it's fine. 
Google for "check_icp" if you need a Nagios plugin written around 
arcconf (it needs only minor edits to work on /bin/sh instead of bash).

It's looking like aaccli is a lost cause though, yes.
