That's a great feature indeed.

You should probably open an RFP bug on the Debian BTS, too. [0]

I just cloned the repository and from what i see there are actually
separate programs in it, that is meek-server, meek-client, appengines,
and browser plugins.

I suppose they all could be built into separate packages? I am thinking
here especially of the browser extensions..  (in that case i can help).

Or should there be meek-server and meek-client?

Or could it work like the tor package, where client and server are
delivered in the same package?

Unfortunately I am not very knowledgeable with Golang, nor with meek, so
i can propose to help only with some guidance (from Lunar for example?).
