Issue #355 has been updated by mtjm.

bsdtar is a dependency of pacman: it's always available, while there might be some reasons to not use unar.

https://code.google.com/p/newton-dynamics/downloads/list lists some newer 2.x releases, I haven't checked if they build.  We can blacklist it until someone else updates it.

Another solution: ask the author to release archives in free formats, maybe they have also better compression than RAR (this should be measured).

Could use bsdtar.  No reverse dependencies, can be removed if no one uses it.
