[LAU] Desktop replacements for ROX applications

For very many years I've been using the combination of OpenBox and ROX. This
has provided a very lightweight and user-friendly interface. It's also
a good fit for the Raspberry Pi, and users unfamiliar with Linux seem to take
to it quickly. However...

ROX filer itself is still fine after all this time, but ROX-Lib relies on
Python-2, so all apps using it are now dead - as is the rox -users list :(

I can get round most of the ones I use but the two I need are desktop
replacements for are the Archiving program (which handles a laundry list of
formats) and screen resolution manager (based on XrandR).

The usual web searches don't seem to show up anything useful.

Any suggestions appreciated.
