We recommend using groups and host groups. Both support nesting.
For the migration purposes a netgroup with the same name is created by
default for any host group you create. This netgroup is jusr a pointer
to the host group sort of a shell.
This would allow you to use host groups in the admin model while the
clients can continue to leverage notgroups until they get smart to use
host groups directly. At that moment you would be able to turn off the
automatic creation of the netgroups.  But this will be a quite distant
