We have two cases:

graphviz-client: sends data to $random_server and save it to a disk.
                 This goes to main.

foo-client: sends data to $random_server and pumps it into an USB device.
            This goes to contrib.

I don't get why graphviz-client would be acceptable for main, while
foo-client is not.
