[lustre-discuss] lustre vs. lustre-client

What is the reason for naming the package "lustre" if it includes both client and server binaries, but "lustre-client" if it includes only the client?

===== (from 
# Set the package name prefix
%if %{undefined lustre_name}
    %if %{with servers}
        %global lustre_name lustre
        %global lustre_name lustre-client

Are there sites that build both with and without servers, and need to keep track which is installed on a given machine?  The size of the RPMs isn't that different, so it's not obvious to me why one would do that.
