If ARIN is going to put resources into fixing their whois 
server, then would it be too much to ask for them to simply
implement the RIPE server software, and jointly develop any
changes necessary, so that the whole world can benefit from
that work? The end result is that ARIN spends less money
and gets more benefits, than if we continue the old insular
practice of hanging on to the first proof-of-concept version
of software tools.
