I believe the bigger part of PostGIS lives in client space. At least for
PostGIS 1.1 the big amount of spatial computations was handled in the
client. I'm not an expert here, but looked to me like everything that
goes beyond the pure idea of a database (storing and using indexes to
retrieve) was handled in the client.
