rather where they were installed. Having the server installed seems to be
completely independent from having the client installed on a particular
system. Furthermore, if I recall correctly the server and client have
different dependencies (even though we're not tracking them in our package
system). It seems to me like two mostly independent source trees for two
mostly independent applications that coincidentally happen to share the same
source tarball.

Furthermore, trying them together into the same package would impose the
requirement that the client and server match version numbers. It's possible
that someone might want to run a 1.1.x server (because other people using
their server are still using 1.1.x) but wants to install a 1.2.x client on
the same system (which includes a backwards-compatible client for 1.1.x

You could always store the source in one location and link to it.
