I gave the refactoring patch a look some days ago, and my conclusion was
that it is reasonably sound but it needed quite some cleanup in order
for it to be committable.  Without any immediate use case, it's hard to
justify going through all that effort.  Maybe we can add a TODO item and
have it point to the posted patch, so that if in the future we see a
need for another parallel client program we can easily rebase the
current patch.
