There are very limited use cases for the client/server model. Most of
them involve multi-system communication. The client/server approach
makes only limited sense in a single host world.

Generally speaking, the client/server model requires some general
purpose "server", which suckless rarely focusses. suckless software
projects are mainly special purpose, hence the lack of applicability.

Hope this gives you some idea, why there is nearly no client/server
software on, if you neglect that we have git a bunch of
X11 clients...
