Standalone Loging and Bookeeping Server

Was asked to help deploy a gLite WMS with out the WMS, basically a stand alone logging and book keeping service. In principal easy but removing packages is always harder than adding them. I think what is needed after discussion is a new sub cluster, an lb, to the glitewms. This should work well but the generic glitewms needs to become a sub-cluster as well really. More generally its seems that CDB profiles and clusters are well defined but the use of sub-clusters seems quite ill defined to me at the moment. FTS and the RBs use a completely different layout even within themselves. One that needs rationalizing I think.
