Please yes. I don't think any jobs really need it, which leads to your next

I don't speak enough puppet to know what the modules we use actually *do*.
We can probably just stop calling puppet and update playbooks as-needed to
get the jobs working again and get rid of the puppet stuff pretty quickly.

Also, someone with more familiarity with puppet might be able to check out
the modules that we use and outline what they do so we can convert those steps
to ansible.
