I'd like to propose that we stop using servergroups as a subdir

proposal is just:
move all .pp files over to 'services' and remove servergroups subdir
1. the distinction between servergroups and services is..... blurry.
2. the actual usage difference between them is confused - if only b/c
we have things which could be services in servergroups and servergroups
3. the distinction doesn't actually buy us anything we don't get with
servergroups -> services sounds good
servergroups -> servers (multiple replication) sounds bad.
just in case people are confused .. servergroups really should be
servicegroups ;) so the transition makes sense.
- since services tend to be module-represented in puppet more than in
manifests, we could move to having:
nodes <-- actual node definitions like we have now
attributes <-- attributes nodes can include (essentially
services but with a less confusing name vis-a-vis our modules/*
