The client_messaging_context might be interesting as it is assumed to be
the same as the server_messaging_context. A central place where this is
done would be db_open which calls server_messaging_context() to pass the
context to db_open_ctdb. If we wanted to split client and server
context, then this would require modification.

Moving POPT_COMMON_CREDENTIALS might be easier from a first glance.
