[Xymon] Display xymon server modules on own line

Hmm, I see how I could use "group-except xymond|xymongen|xymonnet 
Servers" to eliminate the unwanted columns from that group, but how do I 
add them to the "xymon server modules" line (which is on its own, 
without & before the first group* directive)?
