There's a lot of code in the client that is clearly designed to be  
used by multiple programs. There are whole modules that look just  
like common libraries that the client happens to be using.

And personally I'd rather work on programs that contain common  
libraries that are useful on their own than one where every part has  
been trimmed down and customized for that application. Factoring code  
so as to allow and encourage reuse is good design.
