I think the ARC issue is the same with any other patent ...
Recently somebody pointed me to a nice site showing some examples:

http://www.base.com/software-patents/examples.html

Looking at the list briefly I can find at least five patent problems 
using any operating system with PostgreSQL.

 From my point of view having the ARC in there is just as safe / unsafe 
as using "Hello World" and compile it with GCC.

I don't think it possible to sue a community anyway.

	Best regards and have fun reading those examples,

		Hans
