Re: build-debian-cloud plugin to build instance-store based AMIs

I feel your pain. The script currently patches boto for EBS root
volume deletion on termination because of a bug. And I had to create a
new euca2ools command for the publishing plugin.

I too am very busy atm, I have another project with a lot of activity
right now (homeshick). Also I am trying to get a python version of the
bootstrapper working, because we are stretching the capabilities of
the tasks/plugin architecture quite a bit right now.
I would be happy to merge your changes into the 'dev' branch right now
and later into the master branch once we have worked out the last few
kinks with the dependencies.
