Looks like a good time to take another look at it! ;)

... unfortunately, Ubuntu doesn't provide all library dependencies:

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of rodent:
 rodent depends on libdbh2; however:
  Package libdbh2 is not installed.
 rodent depends on librfm5; however:
  Package librfm5 is not installed.
 rodent depends on libtubo0; however:
  Package libtubo0 is not installed.
 rodent depends on libzip2 (>= 0.10); however:
  Package libzip2 is not installed.

The only library I could find was libzip2. Any simple solutions to
install Rodent on Ubuntu 13.10?

The only plugins I'm interested in are sftp and maybe fstab. Wouldn't
it be nicer to provide these plugins in separate packages? (like
xfce4-panel does)
