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
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.
