I believe that is indeed the case. server-optional is not identical to 
<something else variant>-optional.

For dep loops and build ordering / mock config buildout / chroot 
population, I know for a fact that the optional pkgs have been 
considered upstream as well.

Although, they have had some really weird build linking, making me think 
that they have decided to adopt our model of non-standard build roots :D
