aria2 package includes /usr/share/doc/aria2/xmlrpc/aria2rpc which can be used as command line client to connect into aria2c rpc instance.

The command line is written in ruby and requires ruby-xmlrpc module for it to work.

Currently, the module is only available via AUR.

ruby-xmlrpc should be adopted in the community/extra repository and added as aria2 optional dependency, so that aria2rpc command line can be used without depending on aur.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 1.34.0-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:

copy /usr/share/doc/aria2/xmlrpc/aria2rpc into $HOME/bin/ and make it executable

launch the command without first compiling ruby-xmlrpc from aur

Compare the result with ruby-xmlrpc installed.
