[OOTB-addons] status of AAAR addon

The timing would be good Axel, we are just getting honeycomb 1.0 out the 
door (in time for 1 year anniversary of OOTB!) and we have pushed AAAR 
to 1.1.

Would be interesting to hear your thoughts on having some kind of UI 
requirements, possibly that OOTB addons *in honeycomb* could have some 
way to add their UI into an 'order of the bee' menu or something. I 
guess it's more for the distro guys really but you probably have some 
technical insight
