So is it worth having emacs support that extension for them, then?
[Even if there are still a few such files lying around, what's the
likelihood someone would visit one in Emacs?]

I don't particularly care about paul graham's language (the scuttlebutt
is that it's a bit of a mess), but if his language is called "Arc", I
can hardly blame him for using that extension for the source files --
and if the previous user is only very rarely used, not care much about
the conflict.

No, sadly, that particular deficiency is not the cause of my
ignorance... :-(
