I realise that some users may want just client or server functionality, but aren't these the minority - is there any real advantage having two packages rather than the single package we have had up until now? I thought we were discussing just a change of Section name rather than a fundamental splitting of the current package.

Personally speaking I don't see much benefit to having only client installed, but others may disagree.

I certainly don't want any servers I'm not using, for security reasons.
