in the meantime I know that META-INF/services has been reserved for the 
normal purposes and everything else is indeed not valid. You can find 
this in some javadoc comment on some class... somewhere. I can look for 
it again if you want to (of course that is java9+ only)

I still think a groovy library as module will not be able to expose its 
extension methods this way, which means we will most probably not even 
be able to keep the file and will have to move to a SPI structure... but 
moving to META-INF/groovy is probably a good first step
