It's not really necessary as most of the things that make a difference
can be controlled by sysctls.  Most obvious one being the default
disk IO elevator.

Separate /etc/sysctl.conf's makes a lot more sense than a separate
kernel image.

Agreed that sysctls are far better than different kernel builds. Having said that.. what is the mechanism to actually set different knobs on a client distro vs a server distro? For example would that just consist of a bunch of lines spread around random init scripts, or should there be something like a "profile" file with sysctl settings, ie, one for desktop, other for server. Heck, if you can do that, why not have an NFS server, database server, web server separate profiles too.
