I would prove it this way:
Is samba-tool a client or server tool? The reality is that it is both,
and needs the full dsdb stack (server) as well as client libs. A
'client binaries' package missing samba-tool would feel quite limited.
The same applies to smbpasswd and net, which links to passdb but is also
a client tool.
Perhaps we should have pure client tools, but we don't, and the best we
have now is that we use shared libraries to reduce the disk space cost
