They are normally useable with Openstack, which is in Wheezy.
If you want to try Openstack though, it might be more easy to
do so with our latest release (eg: 2012.2.1) only available in
our Git on Alioth:
Following this howto, one should be up-and-running with
Openstack within 30 minutes (plus of course the time it
would take to install Wheezy on a few servers).
I would also like to highlight that Canonical releases some LTS
images specifically made to run on EC2 or on Openstack (and
maybe, with a stronger focus on Openstack). I see no reason
why Debian wouldn't do it as well.
