Also don't worry about about client-side histograms (a.k.a summaries)
provide a summary type but only do the _count and _sum metrics and skip the quantiles, histograms are superior anyway
IME, summaries aren't very useful in practice since you can't meaningfully aggregate them across multiple instances of a service. The prometheus docs go into this in some detail, and the go client has deprecated the auto-instrumentation functions for HTTP handlers for this reason (amongst others).
