What portion of landscape-client is on the server-cd?

For example on the desktop CDs, we only have
landscape-client-ui-install which is a small shim that bootstraps /
installs the rest of the landscape support packages from the archive.

If on the server CD, it's not a small shim yet, maybe we can make it
to be as such (and in python3) ?
