Good to know. That said, I'm not sure all deployers are packaging that
separately :-)

FWIW, I'm not against the split, I just think we should first have a
separate and clean client package for placement in a previous cycle.

My thoughts are :
 - in Pike/Queens (TBD), do placementclient optional with fallbacking to
 - in Queens/R, make placementclient mandatory
 - in R/S, make Placement a separate service.

That way, we could do the necessary quirks in the client in case the
split goes bad.
