Data is always good to have so, sure, let's find out ways to do that.
But I urge to figure out how to gather data that distinguish the wishes
that are cloud-specific wrt the others.

For everything that is not cloud specific, I think we should strive to
make the corresponding improvements where they belong, i.e. in Debian
default installation choices. And I'm sure there is room for
improvements there, because there is always room for improvement :-)

Here, I think we should be mostly concerned for cloud-specific needs
and, sure enough, we should add them to the pre-built images we offer.
