Then one would only need to grab a handfull of deb packages for client (May be 2 or 3) along with an installation script which just needs to be clicked and it setsup the client which is any ways lightweight and does not need any further configuration.

The realy setup is the server app which in any case will be setup on the
server so no pains for testers.
