they are the first place I look for a file I am missing, so if someone referred 
to [arraysize] I'd check if I have it available by:

$ apt-file search arraysize.pd
pd-arraysize: /usr/lib/pd/extra/arraysize/arraysize.pd_linux

then apt-get install pd-arraysize  or apt-cache show pd-arraysize if I wanted to 
see a description or dependency info first.

yes .. that info is useful to include - perhaps in the arraysize help file, 
perhaps in the package description, and your expr example in help is the right 
one in that context. It is your suggestion that arraysize be deprecated that I 
do not like.
