It could have been trivial. I did this:

  static void john_register_one(struct fmt_main *format)
+   if (cfg_get_bool("Disabled", "Formats", format->params.label, 0))
+       return;

...and added this to john.local.conf:

rar = Y

There is just one problem: john_register_all() is called before 
cfg_init(). The devil is, like always, in the details.
